Bariq is recycling 1.6 Billion PET bottles per year on the foundation of two sustainability pillars of being economically justified and environmentally sound. Over the past years, Bariq has recycled approximately 15 billion PET bottles into food and non-food grade pellets, which contributed to saving more than 260,000 tons of CO2 and helping countless marine life avoid non-degradable plastic issues. In late 2021 Bariq was acquired by INTRO Resource Recovery, a member of INTRO
Group, to strengthen its waste management portfolio. In February 2022 Bariq announced in a high-level event their sustainability strategy and plans to be the biggest recycler in the region by adding a washing and upgrading line to its portfolio. The new recycling system, a recoSTAR PET 215 HC iV+ including a viscoSTAR 350 SSP reactor, reaches an output of 2700 kg/h and will enable Bariq to increase its total production capacity to 35,000 metric tonnes of food-grade rPET pellets per year. The viscoSTAR 350 SSP reactor – the biggest size of the latest reactor generation – provides extended processing capacity and residence time while it keeps the footprint of the new recycling line compact like the first Starlinger PET recycling line Bariq installed in 2012.
