Via the deposit system for single-use bottles, each year more than one billion PET bottles find their way to the PET recycling plant in Rostock, which was opened in 2002. The 12,000 m2 recycling plant with an annual capacity of approx. 32,000 tonnes produces food-grade recyclate primarily for bottle production and high-quality recyclate for use in film and thermoforming production, for example.
Our products and processes
We produce high-quality PET recyclate in the form of granulated flakes. This material recovered from PET bottles is suitable for the production of drinks bottles and films that come into direct contact with food, for example. Among other things, the recyclate generated via the URRC process makes mass production of drinks bottles with high-performance injection-moulding machines possible.
A new life for plastic bottles
Only single-use drinks bottles within the deposit system are sorted, with the aim of producing the purest possible proportion of clear/transparent bottles for the recycling plant.
