(cokecce) -- Coca-Cola Enterprises and
ECO Plastics joint venture set to deliver step change in GB plastics recycling
ECO Plastics' plant becomes world's largest plastics processing facility.
Coca-Cola Enterprises Ltd (CCE) and ECO Plastics announce the official
opening of their groundbreaking joint venture, Continuum Recycling.
Completed on time and on budget, the GBR15 million facility is a first
for Great Britain, and brings the recycling process full circle, with used
plastic packaging sorted and reprocessed domestically, before returning to GB
shelves as part of another bottle.
Simon Baldry, Managing Director of
Coca-Cola Enterprises, said: "Our investment in Continuum Recycling shows that
we are serious about setting the industry standard for sustainable packaging.
Today's opening of this 15mln state of the-art facility will transform
recycling in this country and ensure that we achieve our ambition of
incorporating 25% recycled PET in our plastic bottles. This is a first for the
industry and an important milestone in our ongoing efforts to build a
low-carbon, zero waste business here in Great Britain."
