Plastic packaging manufacturer Berry Global’s Flexibles division has expanded its recycling capacity across three of its European recycling facilities.  

The initiative is part of a pan-European project to expand the production of its Sustane range of recycled polymers. 

This project aims to meet growing demand for high-performance films with recycled content.  

The expansion involves the installation of advanced equipment at Berry’s facilities in Heanor, UK; Steinfeld, Germany; and Zdzieszowice, Poland. 

The company expects the expansion to increase its annual recycled plastic production capacity by approximately 6,600t across the sites.

In addition, the investment helps to improve the quality of recyclate used for Berry’s B Circular Range of flexible film solutions, thereby ensuring consistent performance in terms of strength, durability and protection.
