New 4PET plant ensures large scale recycling of PET-trays

The Dutch Waste Packaging Fund (Afvalfonds Verpakking) has made an agreement with 4PET Recycling to start recycling PET-Trays on a large scale from 2018. Until recently the technology for large scale recycling of PET trays was not available. The plant that 4PET currently has under construction in Duiven will be equipped with this technology and ensures a durable solution for the recycling of plastic trays on an industrial scale. These trays have previously been used to package meat, vegetables, fruit amongst other products. 4PET Recycling is the first recycler worldwide to recyle used PET trays as a seperate raw material.
