Multi-Layer Technology

Made using multi-layer technology - the innermost layer uses 100% virgin polyethylene, and the external layers are constructed using post-consumer recycled polyethylene resin (PCR).

Hybrid Pallets

The plastic feet of a hybrid pallet are also made using PCR, furthering the sustainability of the PCR GCUBE IBC from Greif.


GCube IBC tote is a type of intermediate bulk container (IBC) commonly used for storing and transporting liquids, chemicals, and other products. PCR stands for post-consumer resin. The recycled plastic base material allows manufacturers to reduce plastic in landfills and oceans. PCR is also a great option to reduce the quantities of new fossil fuels used to manufacture new plastic products, like the PCR IBC tote.

the cage


The steel cage design of the GCUBE IBC uses square tubes that provide superior strength and help protect the contents in the IBC tank or bottle from the impacts of logistics and material handling.

the cage


The toughness of the GCUBE cage comes down to the tube construction. Greif chose to make an industry-leading tube. When tested in our labs, bending our tube requires a force 40% greater than what is needed to bend the tube from a competitor.

Why is PCR plastic so popular?

If you use IBC totes as one of your go-to packaging sources, you’ve likely heard about PCR or PCR IBC bottles and might have wondered why PCR has become so popular.

Post-consumer resin (PCR) IBC bottles are popular due to their sustainability. PCR IBC bottles are made from recycled plastic, making them an environmentally friendly alternative to virgin plastic containers. In most cases, PCR IBC bottles can be easily cleaned and sterilized, making them a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective option compared to disposable containers.

Using PCR to produce new products helps reduce waste and conserve resources, as it requires less energy and raw materials than having new plastic from virgin materials. Additionally, using PCR helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production and disposal of plastic, making it a more environmentally friendly option.

Sustainability is Our Goal

Greif’s network of life cycle service providers across North America and Europe can extend the life of spent packaging and responsibly recycle their component raw materials at the end of their life cycles.
