A study currently being conducted at Ben-Gurion University, in collaboration with the Portuguese recycling company ECOIBÉRIA, found bacteria capable of breaking down PET (polyethylene terephthalate) into monomers, its subunits, in order to reuse them as a raw material for other plastic products.

ECOIBÉRIA is the only Portuguese company which exports recycled PET FLAKES at the same level as the most important European recyclers.

Giving back value to PET packaging waste through mechanical recycling, ECOIBÉRIA manufactures, in a highly sophisticated and constantly monitored process, high quality PET FLAKES that can be used up to the most innovative applications: blister, multi-layers containers, products for the building, car or textile industry.
