Bottle-to-Bottle PET recycler plans new facility in Lehigh Valley


NEW YORK (Scrap Register): Carbon LITE has announced it will build a third bottle-to-bottle PET recycling facility in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, primarily to serve the rPET needs of beverage company Nestlé Waters North America.

Nestlé Waters has two bottling plants in the Lehigh Valley, and it already purchases rPET from CarbonLITE’s California and Texas facilities, it says.

CarbonLITE expects the new 200,000-square-foot processing facility to be in full production by early 2020, with the capacity to produce 80 million pounds of food-grade rPET pellets from more than 2 billion postconsumer PET bottles a year.
