According to a company spokesperson, Radici is investing in the site to both double capacity and improve product quality. The spokesperson did not provide details on the recycling capacity upon query.
â??We collect and recycle waste inside and outside the group,â? the companyâ??s president Angelo Radici said, confirming the initial concepts formulated by development director Erico Spini and Cesare Clausi, head of sales for the compounding division, during the K 2022 trade fair last October.
So far, the PA producer has predominantly been using waste from the fibre production of its affiliates. The company is now also increasingly utilising contacts in the textile industry to secure material. In this context, Clausi has also mentioned circular automotive models, but as yet no further details have been given.11.04.2023 [252558-0]
