A “major new technology investment” is to enable Belgium-based Resilux to double its bottle-to-bottle PET recycling capacity.

Supplied by Erema, the Vacunite bottle-to-bottle system will help ramp up Resilux’s production of food-grade recycled PET in Switzerland, putting the company in what group chief operating officer, Marcel van de Sande, calls “the perfect position to ride the next green wave by using the Power of PET”.

The equipment will be installed at the company’s Bilten location, where the Resilux Group Recycling competence centre is based. The investment reinforces Resilux’s commitment to making a complete sustainability loop by creating solutions that are best not only for the products they package, but also for the wellbeing of people and the planet.

Resilux produces PET bottles and preforms in Europe and the US, as well as operating a PET recycling plant in Switzerland under the name Poly Recycling AG.
