Coke said it will team with United Resource Recovery Corporation (URRC) to build the recycling plant in Spartanburg, SC. The company said the "plant will produce approximately 100 million pounds of food-grade recycled PET plastic for reuse each year – the equivalent of producing nearly two billion 20-ounce Coca-Cola bottles."
The 30-acre plant is expected to open in 2008 and be fully functional by 2009. Coke has invested in recycling facilities in Switzerland, Mexico, Austria and the Philippines as well.
