EcoCortec opens second production plant in Croatia

November 22/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Croatian manufacturer and converter of biodegradable films, EcoCortec, has officially started up its second production plant in Beli Manastir, Croatia, as per Plasticsnewseurope.

Part of Cortec Corporation of St Paul, Minnesota in the US, EcoCortec produces corrosion protection films using the parent groups VpCI (Vapor phase corrosion inhibitor) technology. The new 2,000m? production unit at the existing Croatian facility houses state-of-the-art E5 extrusion lines, which include features such as: 6.2m wide film, bags on roll and perforated sheets.

Partly-funded by the Croatian ministry of economy, the expansion doubles production capacity at EcoCortec. Apart from extrusion, the operation also has bag converting and printing facilities to meet the markets custom product demands.

The company said in a 15 Nov statement that 2018 has been an "especially successful" year for EcoCortec, with the company completing its expansion and entering new projects.

The projects include a Europes first collection and recycling initiative for used films and plastic bags. As part of the programme, launched late last year, EcoCortecs customers send their waste material back to the Croatian plant where it is recycled and used for manufacturing a new product.

Over the past few years, the Croatian company has participated in a number of large European-funded projects, such as Marine Clean through which it developed its EcoOcean flexible marine biodegradable packaging from biobased PHA polymers.
