This plant, that that Coca Cola claims will be the largest plastic bottle-to bottle recycling plant in the world, is to be located at Spartanburg in South Carolina. The new facility will produce 45,000 tpa of food-grade recycled PET and will be built by Coca-Cola and United Resource Recovery Corporation and will be in full operational by 2009 This plant forms part of a global recycling programme for the company's bottles which has seen investments in Switzerland, Mexico, Austria and the Philippines. Coca-Cola estimates that over the next ten years, the Spartanburg operation will eliminate the production of one million tonnes of C02 emissions - the equivalent of removing 21,500 cars from the road.
