The highlight was a closed business of a viscoSHEET rPET sheet production line with Mexican recycling giant GREEN Mind during the exhibition. The line produces high-quality rPET sheet out of up to 100 % recycling material, which can also be used for food grade packaging. Virgin PET, PCR pellets and post industrial production waste can be processed directly. With this investment, GREEN Mind makes a step towards vertical integration and enters the packaging market.
