World's largest bottle-to-bottle plastic recycling plant to start in California

March 12/2012

(carbonliterecycling) -- California based bottle-grade raw material producer Carbon LITE has opened the world's largest bottle-to-bottle plastic recycling plant in Riverside, California.

The company said that it specialises in processing used plastic bottles into bottle-grade PET pellets that can
then be used to manufacture new plastic beverage bottles, conserving virgin resources, reducing waste sent to
landfill and capitalising on the energy already invested in making existing plastic products.
According to carbonLITE, the 220,000 sq-ft (20,440 square metre) plant will recover more than two billion plastic
PET bottles annually from California's Kerbside and Redemption Value programs. 

Most plastic bottles collected in California were previously exported to China and downcycled into polyester fibre.
By recycling two billion PET bottles (12 fl oz) every year, this cutting-edge facility is helping America save 48
million gallons of gas," commented Jared Blumenfeld, regional administrator for the Environmental Protection
Agency's Pacific Southwest."
