Celebrating signing a contract for developing the most advanced PET sorting plant in Swiss.

We are happy to announce to have signed a contract with AGIR AG to develop a state-of-the-art PET sorting plant in Switzerland which will feature our latest sorting technologies and a high degree of automation. 

Switzerland is one of the world leaders when it comes to PET-recycling. To meet the current and future challenges, Agir decided to further expand their PET sorting plant. Its main goal is to sort different colored PET (mostly bottles) from each other as well as to separate food and nonfood grade plastics. It is also of high importance that the PET bottles will not be damaged during the sorting process.

This installation is an amazing step toward closing the PET loop in Switzerland!
