ALPLA to construct HDPE recycling plant in Mexico

By Mary Page Bailey |

ALPLA Group (Hard, Austria) is building a plant in Mexico for recycling high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It is planned to produce 15,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of post-consumer recycled material. ALPLA has acquired a property in Toluca, capital city of the State of México in the country’s center. Construction of a state-of-the-art recycling plant will commence on it in autumn 2020, with its launch planned for the second half of 2021. The amount invested is roughly 15 million euros and 65 jobs will be created. The company will be run as a 100-per-cent subsidiary of ALPLA, while the facility will have an annual capacity of 15,000 m.t. of HDPE recycled material for non-food applications, for example for packaging solutions for personal care or household cleaning products. The target markets are primarily Mexico, neighboring countries in Central America and the United States.
