plastic news CarbonLITELos Angeles-based CarbonLITE opened its second recycling facility in September 2017 in Dallas. The plant features a washing line supplied by Italy-based Amut Group and is capable of producing more than 12,000 pounds per hour polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flake from postconsumer bales sourced from material recovery facilities (MRFs), making it the second plant of this size that Amut has installed in the U.S. The 250,000-square-foot bottle-to-bottle recycling plant will process more than 100 million pounds of plastic bottles annually.

CarbonLITE’s Dallas facility doubles the company’s annual capacity of food-grade recycled PET.

Regarding the Amut equipment, Leon Farahnick, CarbonLITE president, says, “I’m very satisfied with quality, punctuality and technology.”

“CarbonLITE management has over a decade of experience in PET wash lines and selected the Amut solution to face the new challenges in the market conditions for their Dallas operations,” says Anthony Georges, president of Amut North America. He adds that Amut integrated its de-labeler and the wet whole bottle prewash for the company.
