South Africa recycles

Peter Hartel Krones AG, Neutraubling, Germany

Mpact, one of the country’s leading paper and packaging producers, and its new division Mpact Polymers in late 2015 started operations with its MetaPure bottle-to-bottle PET recycling system. The plant has been designed with a capacity to process almost a quarter of the PET bottles produced by the South African beverage industry into bottle-grade PET.
