Advancing Performance and Sustainability—by Design

The latest industry-leading innovation designed by Silgan Dispensing, LifeCycle™ Technology is a plastic spring portfolio that enhances recyclability without impacting performance.

Unlike conventional dispensers, LifeCycle Technology solutions remove non-recyclable metals and materials, allowing dispensers to be constructed nearly completely from a single polyolefin.

The result is greater compatibility with today’s recycling streams—helping customers meet their goals for both sustainability and performance.

Our Approach

Creating a plastic spring that can replace a metal one but still delivers and exceptional consumer experience is challenging. Our team of engineers and material experts tested hundreds of designs to ensure our LifeCycle Technology is setting the standard for performance and sustainability.

We understand that sustainability is a top expectation when it comes to packaging for brand owners and consumers. That is why we partner with leading plastic recycling organizations such as The Association of Plastics Recyclers, RecyClass and The Institute Cyclos-HTP and follow their guidance in the development of our LifeCycle Technology portfolio.  Every product made with our innovative plastic springs is rigorously tested by an independent third-party lab for recycling compatibility. We then share those results with the organizations to be validated, and if they determine the products meet their criteria, a certification or recognition of recyclability is awarded*.

We believe LifeCycle Technology has the potential to be used in a variety of dispensing solutions, and we will continue to innovate to reduce the environmental impact of our products. Our goal is to continue to develop future eco-conscious solutions, be a sustainability partner for our customers, and respect the environment.

*Recognition and/or certification is usually for a clear or white plastic dispensing solution (pump, sprayer, etc.). Recyclability can be affected by plastic color, bottle choice and label among other criteria.
