ALPLA announces that it is continuing the global expansion of its circular economy with the expansion of its recycling plant in Radomsko, Poland. The internationally active packaging and recycling specialist is investing around eight million euros in the third extrusion line at the site.


The annual production capacity will increase from 30,000 to 54,000 tonnes of food-grade rPET. This makes the PET Recycling Team (PRT) Radomsko one of the largest recycling plants of its kind in Europe.


“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,” said Dietmar Marin, ALPLA Managing Director Recycling Division.

The annual production capacity of food-grade rPET at ALPLA's plant in Poland will increase from 30,000 to 54,000 tonnes.

By 2025, all PET beverage bottles in the EU should contain at least 25% post-consumer recycled (PCR) material. With the expansion of the site in Poland, the company is creating the basis for meeting the EU requirements in the regional markets.


“We actively work with customers to create closed loops for PET packaging and accompany them on their sustainability path. To this end, we are taking care of meeting tomorrow’s needs today and already have some excellent examples in reality,” emphasized Mariusz Musiał, ALPLA Country Manager Poland.


Other investments in recycling


Furthermore, ALPLA invests around 50 million euros annually in the global expansion of its recycling activities. With lighthouse projects such as reusable PET, bottles made from 100% rPET and the recent start of production at the joint venture recycling plants ENVICCO, Thailand, and PET Recycling Team Targu Mures, Romania, the company is fully on track.


This was followed in June 2023 by the announcement of the first recycling plant in Africa in Ballito, South Africa. The total annual production capacity of all recycling companies and collaborations is around 266,000 tonnes for rPET and 74,000 tonnes for rHDPE.
