Germany3 plants: PET, HDPE
In Germany, Veolia processes more than 100,000 tons of plastic every year, on the one hand post-consumer waste from the deposit system for one-way drinks bottles and from the collection of light packaging waste with yellow bags/recyclable waste bins and on the other hand plastic waste from industry and trade. Specialized companies recycle the single-variety materials and provide customer-specific plastics as new raw materials for new products and new markets.

Norway1 plant: PET
The recycling plant in Fetsund, 30 kilometres north-east of the capital Oslo, has an annual capacity of over 20,000 tonnes of washed flake recyclate and handles over 80% of all deposit bottles returned in Norway. From this, about 13,000 tons of ‘food-grade’ granules can be produced per year. The pre-sorting is carried out in the immediate vicinity by our partner Infinitum on the Heia site.
Spain2 plants: LDPE, HDPE, PP, PET
Veolia has two plastic recycling factories in Spain; La Red by Veolia located in Alcala de Guadaira (Seville) and TorrePET by Veolia located in Torremejia (Badajoz) where we offer comprehensive plastic recycling solutions in order to give a second life to all resources and combat plastic pollution from our planet. In these facilities, Veolia recycles four types of plastic: post-consumption rHDPE, rLDPE and rPP (commercial, household and agricultural) in La Red, and rPET in TorrePET.
Switzerland1 plant: PET
We produce high-quality PET recyclate in the form of granulated flakes. This material recovered from PET bottles is, for example, suitable for the production of drinks bottles and films that come into direct contact with food, for example. Among other things, the recyclate generated via the URRC process makes mass production of drinks bottles with high-performance injection-moulding machines possible.
