At the moment, Plarus is the only plant that does full recycling of PET packaging.
The production process consists of three stages:
- Sorting of bottles by colors
- Crushing and washing
- Melting and intramolecular cleaning of finished products.
The plant is able to recycle 20 thousand tons of plastic bottles a year or, in other words, 500 million plastic bottles. 600 thousand tons of PET raw materials are used in Russia every year and manufacturing of PET bottles accounts for more than 90% of them.
