Site Zero: world's largest and most advanced plastic recycling plant set for grand opening

Business

Swedish Plastic Recycling has invested one billion SEK in Site Zero, an advanced plastic sorting and recycling plant in Motala, Sweden. This groundbreaking facility sets new standards for plastic recycling worldwide. On November 15, an inauguration ceremony will take place, welcoming guests from across Europe to witness the world's largest and most advanced plastic recycling plant in action.

Site Zero, an expansion of the already advanced Motala plant, has delivered exceptional results during testing. Unlike typical European plants that can sort 3-4 types of plastics, Site Zero can separate and recycle up to 12 types. This breakthrough means that nearly all plastics in the Swedish packaging market can be recycled efficiently.

Mattias Philipsson, CEO of Swedish Plastic Recycling, said: Site Zero exceeds all expectations; we are now entering a new era of plastic recycling. This plant will be the driving force for the transition that needs to be made worldwide to significantly reduce climate impact and the need for fossil plastic raw materials, and to make plastics part of the circular economy.

Members of the media are invited to join the inauguration and attend a press conference at the site, where recycling results and insights from the testing phase will be shared.
