Aloxe’s €25 million investment in this new plant provides a practical, tried-and-tested technological solution
Aloxe inaugurated its new recycled PET plastic manufacturing plant in Messein (Meurthe-et-Moselle), in the presence of Julien Le Goff, Deputy Prefect, Secretary-General of Meurthe-et-Moselle Prefecture, Dominique Potier, MP for Meurthe-et-Moselle, Philippe Bolo, MP for Maine-et-Loire and an expert in this field, Audrey Bardot, VP of Meurthe-et-Moselle Departmental Council, Filipe Pinho, Chairman of the Moselle-Madon Federation of Municipalities, and Daniel Lagrange, Mayor of Messein.
Aloxe’s €25 million investment in this new plant provides a practical, tried-and-tested technological solution that responds immediately to the major challenges of reusing and recycling single-use foodgrade plastic bottles and, more broadly to the environmental transition in France and Europe.
In a mere two years, Aloxe has consolidated and accelerated its industrial development in France by opening the largest recycled PET manufacturing plant in the country, increasing its production capacity from 12.5 kt to 50 kt. In 2024, Aloxe will be independent leader in Recycled PET in Europe, with a 120kt capacity in France, Poland and Italy.
The new Messein plant, the largest recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) production facility in France.
Built on an old brownfield land, the new Messein site is gradually increasing its capacity, with two new EREMA VACUNITE production lines in operation since September 2023. The old lines from its existing Vézelise facility will be moved to the Messein plant in December 2023, increasing Aloxe's polyethylene terephthalate (PET) recycling capacity in France from 12.5 kt to 50 kt a year.
The project required an investment of €25 million and the creation of 30 new full-time jobs, as of 2023. The entire workforce at the Vézelise plant (15 km from Messein) was offered the opportunity to transfer to the new factory. This is actively helping to boost employment in the Saintois region, and to re-industrialise the Grand Est region and France in the ecological transition growth industry.
Aloxe sets its sights on becoming the leading independent producer of recycled PET plastic in Europe by 2024.
