(AERT), a pioneer in use of recycled polyethylene plastic in the manufacture of composite building materials, has commenced construction work for its new state-of-the-art 70,000 sq. ft PE films and packaging waste recycling facility at Watts, Oklahoma. The new plant will be able to wash, clean, and separate PE materials such as food packaging and wrapping films and is expected to be operational in Q1 2009. The Oklahoma-based plant will use AERT's patented and proprietary recycling technology to provide lower cost raw material thereby benefiting consumers.
