The answer is “yes”. Guangzhou Xinron Pharmaceutical Packaging Co., Ltd. has been a GRS certified supplier since May 2022 and produces pharmaceutical aluminum tubes that contain recycled material according to Global Recycled Standard. Xinron is one of the leading tube manufacturers from China that offer recycled sustainable packaging solutions to industries of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.


 
Global Recycled Standard involves a set of requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, production process, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions. It aims at providing an international standard for verification of suppliers. GRS certification ensures accurate content claims and good working conditions. Companies who seek to purchase products with recycled content are able to identify qualified suppliers by their scope certificate and transaction certificate from GRS certification.
 
Aluminum is one of the most recyclable materials in the world. Aluminum can be made into a product, be recycled and made into another product again. The process can go on infinitely. In fact, recycling is already a major part of aluminum business. It is estimated that 75% of the aluminum that was ever produced in the world has been recycled and is still in use today.
 
As aluminum is widely used for making products across industries, recycling aluminum significantly contributes to a circular and sustainable economy. Making aluminum products from recycled metal takes only 5% of the energy required to make from primary metal. Recycling aluminum reduces carbon emission and saves energy, which makes it a smart strategy to save the environment from global warming.
 
Xinron produces aluminum packaging tubes of which 75% are recycled pre-consumer metal. Pre-consumer recycled content comes from materials generated during manufacturing process, such as trimmings from aluminum product manufacturing, defective aluminum products, and obsolete inventory of aluminum products. In comparison, post-consumer recycled content comes from finished products that have been used by consumers. Either pre-consumer or post-consumer recycle metal contributes to sustainable packaging solutions.
 
By choosing products made from pre-consumer and post-consumer recycle materials, consumers take action to show their concern about the environment. Companies ought to take action to demonstrate their concern and responsibility, too. Xinron is committed to making the contribution as well.
 
Xinron offers empty aluminum tubes for cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Common applications are hand cream tubes and ointment tubes. In addition to GRS certification, our production site complies with ISO 15378 and maintains an active Drug Master File (DMF) at FDA.
