New Kazakh plant to produce fibres from PET bottles

Aug '18
Construction of a plant for processing polyethylene terephthalate (PET bottles) and producing staple fibre was recently completed in Kazakhstan’s Turkestan region. With the full launch of the plant, more than 250 jobs will be created. Investors in the project are Kazakhstan GreenTechnology Industries and Hong Kong General Industry and Commerce.

With 73 employees, the plant has started first-stage production, washing, drying and crushing PET waste. The next stage—staple fibre production—has just been launched.

State-run company for investment support Kazakh Invest offered assistance in connecting the project to gas supply networks, according to a press release on the website of the Kazakh prime minister www.primeminister.kz.

Five to six million tonnes of solid household waste are stored annually in the country, of which about 150,000-200,000 tonnes is PET waste. Only a small proportion of solid household waste is disposed off. The total cost of the project is $20 million. Around 50,000 tonnes of finished products will be produced annually at the plant. (DS)
