Remondis will work with Dutch firm on PET bottle recycling

German waste and recycling company allies with Dutch plastics firm to boost food-grade rPET production.


Lünen, Germany-based waste and recycling services provider Remondis says it is working with Netherlands-based Morssinkhof Rymoplast to help beverage companies meet a European Union target of 25 percent recycled content in polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles.

Remondis says its work with the Lichtenvoorde, Netherlands-based family firm is being undertaken to help the beverage packaging sector meet “the European Commission’s requirement for a higher recycling share in all PET beverage bottles (25 percent by 2025).” Adds Remondis, “The two family-run companies are investing in new processing capacities.”

In Zeitz, Germany, Remondis says it will “start up another expansion phase of its processing plant for PET bottles from the one-way deposit system this month.” And in Markranstädt, Germany, near Leipzig, Morssinkhof Rymoplast “will produce regranulates in a new preparation plant using its own successful MOPET process [starting in] January 2021.”

Remondis says pending approval by anti-trust authorities, the companies will “jointly offer the market high-quality, food-grade rPET regranulates under the name MORE PET GmbH, to enable closed material cycles for PET beverage packaging.”

Remondis describes itself as a leading service provider for the recycling, waste and water sectors, including being a service provider in the German container deposit system as an operator of sorting and extrusion systems for plastic packaging at several locations.

Morssinkhof Rymoplast describes itself as producer of “high-quality plastic recyclates, [and] one of the largest producers in Europe, operating several processing plants.”
