MOSCOW (MRC) -- Protective packaging maker Pregis LLC is making a USD80 million investment in a new, state-of-the-art blown film extrusion facility in Anderson, S.C., said Canplasrics.

In a July 19 news release, the Deerfield, Ill.-based company says the 168,000 square foot facility will feature multiple newly-installed lines will be producing the latest engineered films that be used downstream to manufacture performance-oriented, packaging solutions for food, CPG and medical device applications. The plant will also include a world-class film laboratory to develop and test materials, the company said.

We believe that this new facility will be the most technologically-advanced extrusion facility in North America, said Pregis president and CEO Kevin Baudhuin.

In keeping with Pregis previously announced 2K30 environmental goals, the Anderson facility will also feature the latest in energy-efficiency in manufacturing and other plant functions, Pregis said. [The] objective is to run in the most sustainable manner possible, so that it improves its carbon footprint, reduces environmental impact, while making significant, positive contributions to people and society," the news release said.

The facility will create 120 new jobs for workers in the Greenville area and is expected to be operational in September.

As per MRC, French waste management and recycling major Paprec is planning to build a new mixed-plastic waste sorting facility in Chalon-Sur-Saone. Construction will start in the next few months for completion at the end of 2021. The facility will sort mixed-coloured waste by material and colour and is expected to have a capacity of approximately 30,000 tonnes/year.

According to the ScanPlast survey of MRC, PP supplies to the Russian market in January-May this year amounted to 607,890 tonnes, which is 33% more than the same indicator a year earlier. The supply of propylene homopolymer (PP-homo) and propylene block copolymer (PP-block) also increased. The supply of stat-copolymer propylene (PP-random) has declined.
