T3 (EPZ) Limited, a member of Megh Group, ordered a Starlinger recoSTAR PET bottle-to-bottle recycling line for its new plant in Athi River, Kenya. With this project, T3 aims to contribute to the establishment of a circular economy with a positive impact on both the environment and the society in the country.


Driven by the need to stop pollution of the environment in the country, preserve natural resources, and increasing awareness about the benefits of recycling, the market for recycled PET in Kenya is growing.


Megh Group company T3 (EPZ) Limited is going to install the first PET recycling system for bottle-grade rPET and resin in Kenya and Eastern Africa, a Starlinger recoSTAR PET 165 HC iV+ recycling line, in Athi River just outside Nairobi.


In T3’s Athi River facility the input material is thoroughly sorted before further processing. Starlinger PET recycling process ensures safe reuse of the recycled PET in bottle-to-bottle applications.

The food-safe rPET will be used in bottle preform production and for polyester fibre production in the textile and garment industries as well as for the group's automotive trims and textile business Megh Singh Cushion Makers. T3 sources the post-consumer PET bottles for recycling through various collection strategies.


With thorough collection and sorting methods and processing on the FDA and EFSA-approved Starlinger recycling system T3 ensures that the produced rPET resin will be of high quality to meet the standards of global brand owners, such as Coca-Cola.


The plastics recycling industry in Kenya is still in its early stages and faces challenges such as lack of input material and infrastructure, low levels of investment, and limited access to market information. T3 has developed an extensive collection system throughout the country with the aim of building the right incentives for waste collectors, who are highly marginalized.


Commenting on the collaboration with Starlinger, Gurpreet Kaur Kenth, COO of T3, said, "Starlinger is a leading supplier of recycling technology for plastics and has decades of experience in the field. The company has a strong track record of delivering high-quality recycling solutions with recycling lines that are designed using the latest technology. They provide great ongoing support, have top-tier engineers who ensure the machines are made to perfection, and value customer relations a lot."
