Artenius PET Packaging Europe: Investment in rPET mixing facility

Following the signing of an exclusive agreement with AWS Eco Plastics (Newcastle-upon-Tyne / UK; www.awsecoplastics.com), customers of Artenius PET Packaging Europe (APPE, Gresford / UK) soon will be able to decide for themselves how much post-consumer recycled PET (rPET) they want to have in their preforms or containers.

Under the terms of the deal, AWS Eco Plastics will become the La Seda de Barcelona (Barcelona / Spain; www.laseda.es) subsidiary’s sole supplier of rPET pellets. At an investment cost of more than GBP 250,000 (about EUR 284,000), APPE currently is building a new mixing facility at its plant in Gresford / UK where it will mix the 13,000 t/y of rPET it will receive as part of the agreement.
