The Spanish company Formaspack is an extraordinarily successful family-owned business located in Cantabria. Luis Sastre founded the business in 1995, which today is a leading company for food and beverage packaging solutions in Spain. Formaspack counts on recycled material ever since to produce rPET sheet from post-consumer recycled flakes.
From Flake to Sheet.
From Bottle to Bottle.
In the past year, Formaspack invested in state-of-the art technology and opened new operations and plants. They run four Starlinger viscotec sheet lines, and two Starlinger bottle-to-bottle PET recycling plants with solid state polycondensation (SSP) technology for food grade treatment.
We talked to Ana Sastre Gómez about Formaspack’s decision to go into bottle-to-bottle recycling. “Formaspack has been dedicated to the transformation of recycled PET for 25 years. It is a great opportunity for us to profit from our knowledge and to diversify to other activities. The change to circular models and to PET is already a fact, in this sense, presents big opportunities.”
