Poland: Jelenia Plast Uses More Plastic Regranulate

German-Polish producer Jelenia Plast and Polish plastic recycler ML Polyolefins have contracted the supply of polypropylene recyclate in the next step of their cooperation.

The contract was signed by Jens Kröger on behalf of Jelenia Plast and Tomasz Mikulski, president of ML Sp. z o.o. As reported, the companies did not provide the exact value of the contract due to trade secrets but indicated that the contract value would amount to a “few million Euros per year”.

ML Polyolefins is a leader in producing polypropylene from recycled materials in Central and Eastern Europe, manufacturing about 1,200 tons of granulates per month. The company intends to strengthen its leading position in the region and join the group of the largest manufacturers of black polypropylene in Europe. Its investment plans include the construction of new storage yards, a new factory, the purchase and installation of a new regranulation line, further improvement of the machinery park and an increase in production potential. Jelenia Plast was founded in 1992 by Mathias and Jens Kröger. Today the company employs more than 700 people and produces household and garden items by injection molding and rotation. The company sees itself as the market leader in this product segment, which started in 2003.
