Australia is constructing its largest PET recycling plant in Albury-Wodonga as part of a joint venture between Asahi Beverages, Pact Group and Cleanaway Waste Management.

The US$45 million plant – in the Nexus Precinct of Australia – is set to be fully operational by October and is currently being excavated.

The facility will trade as Circular Plastics Australia PET and produce the equivalent of one billion 600 ml PET bottles annually.

The plant will also be used to produce over 20,000 tons of new recycled PET (rPET) bottles and food packaging. Solar energy will power part of the facility.
