AMUT Group and CarbonLite working together to improve plastic bottles recycling
New washing line helping to close the loop on recycling and increase sustainability of PET containers
"We are glad to have scored another top reference in the Northern America plastic recycling market," stated Mr. Piergianni Milani, the President of AMUT GROUP. "The CarbonLITE PET recycling project comes after the two mega PET recycling plants that AMUT supplied in North America to UNIFI in Reidsville, North Carolina, and to PETSTAR Coca-Cola Mexico."
The new CarbonLITE recycling facility, located in Dallas, Texas, started operations in September 2017, as per the schedule. The washing line supplied by AMUT has the state of art of the technology and is the second plant of this size in operation in the USA, capable of producing over 12.000 pounds per hour of highest quality PET from MRF post-consumer bales.
Mr. Leon Farhanick, President of CarbonLITE, said "I'm very satisfied with quality, punctuality and technology. Among the many OEM we had in this project AMUT is the one that
pleased us best".
This 250.000-square-foot bottle-to-bottle PET recycling plant processes more than 100 million pounds plastic bottles annually and the AMUT washing section is capable of
reaching 6 metric tons per hour (the Dallas facility will double the company's annual capacity of foodgrade PET) and permits the transformation of old plastic bottles into PET resins, flakes and pellets that can then be used to produce new beverage bottles and other sustainable products. This closes the LOOP ON RECYCLING and increases the sustainability of the PET containers.
