Austrian recycling experience in Latvia

26. July 2016

“Nordic Plast”, one of Latvias leading plastic recycling companies, uses Austrian experience in recycling technology. The waste processing equipment is purchased from Austria and Italy. Also, the production technology is taken from these countries. Latvia derives a benefit from Western countries being more experienced in recycling.

2014 “Nordic Plast” installed more powerful equipment. As a result, processing volumes increased and the company became a leading polythene waste recycling company in the Baltic region. “Nordic Plast” invested 2.5 million euros in a new production plant in Latvia's central town Olaine and the machinery was installed by the Austrian “Starlinger Group”. Starlinger’s technology offers a wide range of innovative machinery solutions in the plastic sector and has become a global player in the field of recycling technology.

“Nordic Plast” produces 550 tons of plastic pellets a month. Therefore 8.500 tons of plastic products have to be recycled. Most of the products are exported to Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and France, only a small amount of the produced pellets stays in Latvia.
