PolyQuest Inc. has announced that the company will further invest in its polyethylene terephthalate (PET) recycling operation in Darlington, S.C., to meet growing demand for post-consumer recycled content.
Since 2006, the Wilmington, N.C.-based company has produced high quality recycled PET (rPET) resins at the Darlington facility. Using either post-industrial or post-consumer rPET feedstocks, PolyQuest can manufacture amorphous, crystallized and solid state rPET resins that are either non-FDA or FDA approved for food contact. Plans call for building at least one additional FDA, rPET resin line in Darlington that is scheduled to be operational by Q3, 2021. The resin produced on this line will be of high quality and suitable for use in the vast majority of PET applications.
