Safety assessment of the process Buergofol, based on EREMA Basic technology, used to recycle post‐consumer PET into food contact materials

Undefined

Published on: Wed, 11 Mar 2020

The EFSA Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes and Processing Aids (CEP) assessed the safety of the recycling process Buergofol (EU register number RECYC179) which uses the EREMA Basic technology. The input material is hot caustic washed and dried poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) flakes originating from collected post‐consumer PET containers including no more than 5% PET from non‐food consumer applications. The flakes are heated in a continuous reactor under vacuum before being extruded. The Panel concluded that the continuous reactor (step 2, for which a challenge test was provided) is critical in determining the decontamination efficiency of the process. The operating parameters to control the performance of this step are temperature, pressure and residence time. It was demonstrated that this recycling process is able to ensure a level of migration of potential unknown contaminants into food below the conservatively modelled migration of 0.15 μg/kg food derived from the exposure scenario for toddlers when such recycled PET is used at up to 100%. Therefore, the Panel concluded that the recycled PET obtained from this process is not of safety concern when used at up to 100% for the manufacture of thermoformed trays and containers for contact with all types of foodstuffs, except drinking water, for long‐term storage at room temperature. Trays made of this recycled PET are not intended to be used in microwave and conventional ovens and such uses are not covered by this evaluation.
