Plastic packaging manufacturer ALPLA has announced the expansion of its recycling plant in Radomsko, Poland, with an approximately €8m ($8.7m) investment.

The company will install a new advanced extrusion line at the site.

The new line is the third at the site and will make the Radomsko facility one of the largest recycling plants of its kind in Europe.

According to ALPLA, the added line will increase the annual production capacity of food-grade recycled PET (rPET) material at the site from 30,000 tonnes (t) to 54,000t.

ALPLA Recycling’s managing director Dietmar Marin said: “ALPLA stands for sustainable packaging solutions made of plastic. As a system provider, we develop products optimised for recycling, process high proportions of recyclate in production and take care of efficient recycling.

“With our global focus on recycling and our commitment in Central and Eastern Europe, we make a significant contribution to the regional bottle-to-bottle cycle.”

The extra extrusion line will generate 12 jobs and will expand the team to more than 100 employees at the plant.

With this expansion, ALPLA is securing the long-term supply of food-grade rPET.

The company is also creating the basis for complying with the EU’s requirements in the regional markets through this expansion.

The EU requires all PET beverage bottles in the region to contain at least 25% post-consumer recycled material by 2025.
