Recycling

Returned used PET bottles are converted in the FROMM recycling plant to high-quality regrinds, regranulates and agglomerates for the production of PET straps, food packagings, textiles and beverage bottles. FROMM recycled PET products exceed the highest ecological and food industry standards.

With the founding of a joint venture in cooperation with the Austrian food packaging producer ALPLA, FROMM is dedicated to the recycling of PET waste from the collection of plastics from German households.
