Breaking News UK/EU Plastic Tax Challenges Solved with NESS’s GEX Innovation

Author Harvey Samuel on 13.11.2023

With great pride, NESS presents GEX, a patented, cutting-edge, and environmentally friendly substance made from eggshells that has the potential to reduce plastic content in production by up to 50% while maintaining remarkable environmental friendliness.

NESS provides Plastic TAX compliance. As of April 1, 2022, the UK’s Plastic Packaging Tax (General) Regulations 2022 are in effect. The new charge is being implemented, in part, to promote recycling. The tax only applies to plastic packaging products with less than 30% recycled content. Therefore, a plastic container that contains 35% recycled material is tax-free.

The GEX resin is created through a meticulous, multistep process that transforms eggshells into an ultra-fine bio-calcium powder featuring particles as tiny as one micron, which is then pelletized. This versatile material can be seamlessly blended with virgin plastic, offering an impressive reduction in plastic content ranging from 30% to 50%.


GEX’s most remarkable attributes is its compatibility with recycled plastics and bioplastics, making it ideal to produce eco-conscious products. It can be seamlessly integrated into various plastic types, including PP, PE, HDPE, PET, EVA, PS, ABS, rubber, PVC, and PLA. Additionally, it supports multiple manufacturing processes such as injection moulding, blow moulding, film blowing, calendaring, thermoforming, and vacuum forming.
