Coca-Cola invests in PET recycling in Kenya

Coca Cola, along with two companies involved in the beverage industry, have formed a new company called PET Recycling of Kenya to manage the PET plastics recycling project.

The venture, PET Recycling Company of Kenya, will work with Greenplast International, a recycler near Nairobi, Kenya, to crush the collected plastics and export the material to China.

The company aims to collect 4,200mt of materials at the Greenplast facility by 2015. The project is expected to recycle nearly 70% of the plastics containers sold by 2015.
