«Ekopet» is the largest manufacturing plant for polyethylene terephthalate in Russia and Eastern Europe, created with the aim of implementing a long-term PET project in the Russian and European polymer markets.
«Ekopet» is a resident of a Special Economic Zone in the Kaliningrad region. The products of the Kaliningrad plant are supplied both to the Russian market and to the markets of the European Union and CIS countries.
Currently, the «Ekopet» plant produces high-viscosity granulated polyethylene terephthalate under the trade mark Eköpet. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is designed for the production of PET bottles for carbonated and non-carbonated beverages, juices, dairy products, vegetable oil, as well as other types of packaging for food and non-food purposes.
For the production of PET branded Eköpet the latest technology MTR of a one-stage two-phase production of PET-granulate is used, which allows to reduce capital costs, energy consumption and raw materials consumption.
The supplier of technology and equipment is Uhde Inventa Fischer GmbH (Germany). The use of this technology for the production of PET 2R MTR makes it possible to obtain a polymer with a reduced melting point, much lower, than in traditional PET, crystallinity and practical absence of dust in the composition of the product being shipped, which allows our customers to have both a high-quality product and reduced energy costs in PET processing.
Plant «Ekopet» is the first factory in Europe and the fourth in the world, working on technology MTR.
