Los Angeles — PET recycler CarbonLite Inc. is expanding capacity at its Dallas plant by 20 percent.
The Los Angeles-based company, which claims to be the world's largest recycler of plastic beverage bottles, also has plants in Riverside, Calif., and Reading, Pa. The company recycled 200 million pounds of PET in 2019, according to the most recent Plastics News ranking.
New equipment in the 220,000-square-foot, $62 million Dallas plant, which opened in 2017, includes an additional extrusion line.
The company's customers include Coca-Cola, Nestle Waters North America and PepsiCo.
