Resilux, a leading PET bottle and preform producer, announced a significant new technology investment, resulting in the company doubling its bottle-to-bottle PET recycling capacity. Using state-of-the-art equipment from Erema, it is Resilux’s latest step in its drive to create a truly circular economy in PET.

The new Vacunite bottle-to-bottle system enables the company to ramp up its production of food-grade recycled PET significantly. The investment has been made in response to increased customer demand and the expectation that production will only increase in the future. Marcel van de Sande, Company Group chief operating officer, says, “The new technology puts us in the perfect position to ride the next green wave,” by using the ‘Power of PET.’

The equipment will be installed at the company’s Bilten location in Switzerland, where the Resilux Group Recycling competence center is based. The investment reinforces its commitment to making a complete sustainability loop by creating solutions that are best for the products they package and the well-being of people and the planet. For them, it is another demonstration of being ‘safe for the planet’ – and its ability to be both a versatile and sustainable packaging solution.
