Marglen Industries maintains a constant focus on the environment and modern recycling technology. We have our own bottle washing and grinding facility, where we use environmentally safe chemicals and processes to clean our bottles and wash the labels off, and a laser-assisted sorter to help categorize the bottles by color. We have two PET fiber extrusion lines that run 24/7 producing high-quality fiber that is baled and shipped out worldwide. We also have a third extrusion line that uses brand new Erema extrusion equipment to allow us the produce LNO food-grade resin from our recycled bottle flake that is shipped to all different industries, such as food and pharmaceutical packaging industries.
