News

Phoenix Technologies International, a global producer of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET), is announcing an USD18 million expansion to enable upstream production integration. The company will be adding a proprietary new wash line, expected to be operational by the end of 2015, so that it can self-manufacture clean flake. The company uses clean flake as in feed material to create rPET, which is used to produce packaging for applications such as beverages, food, personal care and household cleaners. Up until now, Phoenix has either purchased clean flake directly or sourced baled bottles, which have been reclaimed from curbside collection, and then tolled through a third-party wash operation to create clean flake. The wash line has a projected output of 25,000 tons (50 million pounds) of clean flake per year.

The new line will be housed in a leased 6,130 square meter (66,000 square foot) facility located in close proximity to Phoenix’ existing manufacturing plant. When the operation is in full production, the new facility is expected to employ approximately 30 associates. This is in addition to the 53 employed at the main plant.
