* All Napolina oil bottles are now made from 100% recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic (excludes cap and label). 100% of the
bottle is recyclable.
38 tonnes of virgin plastic will be removed from production each year from us now moving to a 100% PET from 51% PET, which is
calculated against an average annual forecast of 8,000,000 units . Calculations provided by Plastipak
Based on average CO2 emission collated Valpak for 2020, production and transportation for a case of oil in glass bottles is 1,569 Eq CO2g.
The equivalent production and transportation for a case of oil in bottles made from 100% RPET is 587 Eq CO2g. Therefore, our move to
100% PET will reduced our carbon footprint by 60% less than glass. Calculations provided by Plastipak
The CO2 emissions from producing 8,000,000 units (annual volume forecast) of 51% recycled PET bottles is 6,941m tonnes per year. For
bottles made from 100% recycled PET, this drops by 612 tonnes to 6,330 tonnes. Figures provided by Plastipak
Based on average CO2 emissions collated Valpak for 2020, new car emissions are 127.9g per km and on average the annual millage is
12,714km, this equates to a car producing 1.63 tonnes of CO2eq per year. Given the saving of 611.3 tonnes of CO2eq per year from
moving from 51% to 100% RPET, Napolina’s emission reduction equates to taking more than 375 cars off the road annually. Calculations
