Alpla Werke Alwin Lehner GmbH & Co KG, Hard, Germany, and Fromm AG, Spreitenbach, Switzerland, have agreed on a collaboration in relation to PET recycling. Both companies operate recycling plants for PET bottles, thus ensuring the necessary supply of materials for their own production facilities.

The goal of the collaboration is the further optimisation of the already high recycling rates for PET as well as a significant reduction in CO2 emissions through saved transport. There are also further benefits for the partners, such as simplified access to markets in the respective countries.

“The requirements at our production sites complement one another very well. At Alpla, we mainly need clear, food-grade pellets. Fromm processes coloured flakes for the strapping bands,’ explains Georg Lässer, Head of Corporate Recycling Services at Alpla. ‘The collaboration between our recycling facilities will ensure the necessary quantity and quality of materials for production for both sides.”

“The three recycling plants are integrated in various procurement markets and complement one another ideally in the procurement of raw materials,” highlights Reinhard Fromm, owner of the family-run Fromm Group.

Partners with Complementary Interests

The PET Recycling Team plants in Wöllersdorf, Austria, and Radomsko, Poland, are part of the Alpla Group. These recycling facilities have an annual capacity of approximately 45,000 t of food-grade rPET produced from post-consumer materials.

The PET recycling company Texplast in Wolfen, Germany, has been a subsidiary of Fromm Plastics GmbH since 2004. Texplast produces PET pellets and PET flakes. Fromm uses these for its own production of strapping bands and also supplies manufacturers of beverage bottles, thermoforming sheets and fibers.

The contract partners have agreed not to disclose the details of the cooperation. Further possibilities to extend the cooperation are to be explored.
