Klöckner Pentaplast to Expand PET Extrustion Capacity in North America

Klöckner Pentaplast (kp), a global leader in recycled-content products and high-barrier protective packaging, has announced plans to expand its post-consumer recycled PET extrusion capacity in North America.

The multimillion-dollar expansion will add 17,500 metric tons of capacity and will include “special, super-cleaning technology,” which will allow the company to better meet rising demand for post-consumer recycled content.

“As major brands announce robust, sustainability initiatives that includes post-consumer and recyclable packaging, kp will be positioned to service those market needs for the foreseeable future” said CEO Scott Tracey.

kp is still in the process of determining which of its eight North American locations will be used to provide the expanded capacity.
