Starlinger delivers its first bottle-to-bottle plant to Turkey

It is equipped with one of the biggest extruder sizes that Starlinger recycling technology is currently building and produces up to 2,400 kg food-safe rPET per hour. The evaluation of the project by the European Food Safety Authority EFSA is currently underway.

“Ba?atl? is one of the pioneers in PET bottle-to-bottle recycling in Turkey. We are happy that they have chosen PET recycling equipment from Starlinger for their ambitious project”, says Paul Niedl, Commercial Head of Starlinger recycling technology. “With this investment, Ba?atl? contributes significantly to establishing a PET bottle recycling system in Turkey.”

Founded in 1953, family-owned Ba?atl? Boru Profil San.Tic.A.?. is a producer of industrial steel pipes, hollow sections and sheets located in Kocaeli Province. The company entered the PET recycling market in 2019 and produces PET flakes from bottles and post-consumer waste. The rPET flakes are used in non-food PET packaging, fibers and strapping production. The food-grade rPET pellets processed with Starlinger’s FDA, EFSA and brand owner-approved recycling equipment will be supplied to the bottle-to-bottle industry for preform production.
