Pet2Pet Recycling GmbH is a pooling of the five largest Austrian beverage producers, Coca Cola, Radlberger, Rauch, Vöslauer and Spitz. By signing the sustainability agenda for drinks packaging, the Austrian beverage industry has made it its goal to recycle or refill at least 80% of the beverage containers sold.
In 2007, the recycling plant in Müllndorf in the state of Burgenland was commissioned after just one year’s construction time and has been recycling around 10,000 tonnes of PET material annually since then.
Used PET bottles are processed in a multi-stage recycling process to become food-safe PET recyclate - or PET flakes. These are then supplied to the beverage industry for producing new bottles.
