The prospects for the resumption of production of Coca Cola's plastic recycling plant in the United States are still unclear.
the PET recycling plant jointly established by Coca Cola in Spartanburg, South Carolina, will resume the production of food grade particles this week, and the plant will stop production in March this year. However, Coca Cola did not disclose the extent to which it would resume production
Coca Cola confirmed in an email sent on August 18 that the plant would indeed resume production. Coca Cola said the move was "a positive step in its efforts to optimize and restructure [recycled] PET production."
in the past six months, Coca Cola has been improving the equipment and production process to more efficiently process recycled PET bales into difficult recycled food grade resins. At the same time, it has also solved some problems in the previous regeneration process, such as the bottle weight is too light to fly off the production line - often only the bottleneck is left on the regeneration equipment
spartanburg factory has experienced at least four engineering improvements since its establishment, and has been committed to improving its profitability
this 50million dollar plant was grandly opened in January, 2009. Coca Cola intends to build the plant into the world's largest @11. It successively tests other groups of samples according to the above 4~9 items, and pre records that the average value of the same sample is obtained from the bottle to bottle PET regeneration plant. However, the material still needs to have high thermal mechanical strength. After that, it encountered quality problems in the production of food grade PET
a source told us that the technology used by the factory is still not suitable for regenerating newer light drink bottles and water bottles after improvement, so it has a great loss in output
the plant has not reached the nameplate capacity of 56million pounds (25401 tons), and the second production line that was originally planned to increase the capacity to 100million pounds (45359 tons) was not installed in place in 2015
according to sources, most of the recycled PET resin produced by the plant is used to make low-end fibers and strapping. As of March when the plant was shut down, about 1million pounds (454 tons) of annual production of the plant had been reused for bottle making
nurrc factory adopts the URRC hybrid unpet technology, which first smashes the waste PET bottles and then carries out chemical cleaning. The process adopted by most PET recycling enterprises is to clean pet bottles first and then crush them
Coca Cola also has PET recycling plants in Mexico, France, Austria, Switzerland and the Philippines, but the Philippine plant has never been officially put into operation
Coca Cola now owns 49% of Spartanburg factory. A source told plastics that Coca Cola was still interested in selling its shares in the plant, but could not find a buyer whose bid met its requirements
