Italian firm Dentis set to recycle 130,000 tonnes of PET bottles by 2024


Dentis Recycling Italy is set to expand its PET bottle recycling capacity to 130,000 tonnes by 2024.

The company based in Piedmont has invested to now offer food-grade rPET granules in addition to hot-washed PET bottle flakes.


It currently processes 80,000 tonnes per year, but expects to add another 50,000 tonnes to the existing facility.

The company has invested in two Starlinger ecoSTAR PET 330 HC iV+ bottle-to-bottle recycling systems.

Dentis Recycling Italy co-owner Roberto Dentis said: “We want to promote the transition from a linear economy to a circular economy.

“With Starlinger’s technology we can be sure that the recycled PET we produce meets the high requirements of our customers from the field of food and beverage packaging. By producing high-quality, food-safe PET recycling granulate, we are able to establish a closed cycle for PET bottles and make an effective contribution to achieving European recycling goals, so that used plastic packaging should no longer be seen as waste, but rather as an important resource for high-quality packaging.”
