Resilux signs contract with Dansk Retursystem for PET bottle supply

December 03/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Belgium-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) recycler and preform producer Resilux has signed a long-term contract with Dansk Retursystem, the operator of the Danish deposit return system (DRS) that will give Resiliux access to PET bottles collected in Denmark, said Petnology.

The contract will give Resilux access to PET bottles collected via reverse vending machines in Denmark on the understanding that those bottles will be recycled and made back into bottles through the supply of preforms. This ensures that the food-grade recycled PET (R-PET) produced by Resilux is going back into the manufacture of bottles and not down-cycled into less valuable end-use applications or products.

This is not an exclusive offtake agreement the post-consumer bottle bales are made available to other recyclers - and the contract does not state that all bottles collected via the Danish DRS must be returned into the Danish market. The length of the contract was also not disclosed.

Resilux entered into a partnership with German recycling company RCS Group in October, which may allow Resilux to source high quality recycled materials produced by RCS from the German waste system, thereby providing full traceability of materials from collection through to production of food grade recycled materials and their re-use in new preforms and bottles.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PET consumption reached 52,71o tonnes in September 2020, down by 27% year on year. Overall PET consumption in Russia reached 530,750 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, down by 22% year on year.
