How plastic bottles and cans are recycled?
With 2 sorting facilities in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the materials collected by RECAPP are sorted per waste category. The recovered recyclables are compacted and baled to be efficiently transported to local recycling and transformation facilities.
In the UAE, Veolia is committed to opening the first PET Recycling Facility for Food-Grade Application. The collected post-consumed PET bottles will be delivered to Veolia's PET Recycling Facility where they'll be extensively washed, extruded, and decontaminated to produce a high-quality recycled Resin (rPET). Produced under high safety and environmental standards, this rPET will be (re)used in the local packaging and food industry, closing the loop of the PET resin in the UAE.
Regarding aluminum cans, they are flattened into bales and then transported to a third-party recycler. Cans are cleaned and crushed into small pieces. Then they are melted and cast into ingots which are rolled into coils of a can sheet. They are ready to be remanufactured into new aluminum products.
