Thai IVL completes purchase of Wellmans Europe PET recycling ops

December 01/2011
SINGAPORE (ICIS) -- Thai producer Indorama Ventures Ltd (IVL) said late on Wednesday it has closed the deal to acquire the European recycling operations of Wellman International from German firm Aurelius for an undisclosed amount.


Wellman International is Europes largest recycler of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and also produces polyester stable fibre products and recycled PET (rPET), IVL said in a statement.
The deal, which was first announced in September 2011, will assist IVL in pursuing its customers' sustainability needs and meet the demands of consumers for more recycling of post consumer products, IVL said.

Wellman International processes a total of 1.6bn used PET bottles each year.
I see the possibility for Indorama Ventures to move towards being a zero waste' company with lower dependence on upstream carbon based feedstocks, said IVL CEO Aloke Lohia in the statement.
