Circular Economy – Contract signing with Wuzhou Guolong
27 May 2019
Best Show ever and milestone for sustainability in the packaging industry!
Guolong is one of the first Chinese companies significantly invest in the Circular Economy. Guolong has chosen proven technology partners for the implementation of the PET recycling project.
In addition to the recycling specialists SOREMA, EREMA, SML and Tomra, 6 thermoforming systems from Kiefel have also been included. Five KMD Smartformers and a KTR 6.1 Speed are complete the cycle and will produce Guolong trays and cups made from recycled PET.
During the Chinaplas 2019, the supply contracts were festively signed by Mr. Guo, the owner of the Guolong Group and the managing directors of the companies involved.
For Guolong this represents the first step into a sector undergoing strong growth. In China, Circular Economy has become a major topic; extensive government decisions are forcing its implementation.
This year's Chinaplas thereby surpassed all expectations and was very satisfactory and highly positive for Kiefel.
