Bottle to bottle

Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola FEMSA Colombia and Enka, a Colombian firm that is a leading maker of polymer products and synthetic fibers in Latin America, signed an agreement to produce polymers with world-class technology, starting up a project called “Bottle to Bottle,” which is transforming recycled PET plastic bottles into other food-grade containers.

This initiative is aligned with the Coca-Cola System’s mission of promoting sustainability through the four “R’s”: reduce, re-use, recover and recycle.

As of April 2014, around 16% of PET production will include bottles made up of at least 25% recycled material and which are 100% recyclable, with the same characteristics in terms of appearance, weight and useful life.
