Turkish recycling company Futurapet (Düzce; www.futurapet.com.tr) has invested an undisclosed amount in a new PET recovery plant, which was recently put into operation. Futurapet is a spin-off of Turkish consumer goods group Engin Grup (Istanbul; www.engingrup.com). The agreement with German machine maker Herbold Meckesheim (Meckesheim; www.herbold.com) on the construction of the recycling line also marked the founding of Futurapet in 2020.

According to information from Meckesheim, the “largest single-line recycling system” that the machinery manufacturer has installed to date is designed for a daily output of 90 t/d, the equivalent of an annual production volume of more than 30,000 t/y of PET recyclate, which can then be used for producing both films and bottles.

Engin Grup describes its plastics waste recycling spin-off in Düzce, some 200 km east of Istanbul, as an “important investment”. On the occasion of the production launch, Oğuz Engin, managing director of Futurapet and board member of Engin Grup, said, “We are already recycling 6 mn PET bottles a day.”
