Recycled PET makes inroads in produce market

Phoenix Technologies plans to contribute to that demand by going local.

The company established a sister — PTI Recycling Systems, Holland, Ohio, — whose sole purpose is to sell its rPET production and manufacturing systems. 

By locating rPET resin manufacturing lines close to sources — such as large-scale municipal recycling facilities — recyclers have more incentive to take on different types of PET.

It’s cost-effective because of the scale and the reduction in transit between recycling facilities and rPET production.

“It is much easier to source for a 10-million-pound-line than it is to source for a 100-million-pound-line,” Carson said. “Our whole philosophy is to keep everything as local as you can.”
