We are proud to announce the expansion of EcoCortec® plant. EcoCortec® is a manufacturer of environmentally safe VCI/VpCI® anti-corrosion films and bags under patent of Cortec® Corporation. The plant located in green area in Croatia is a European daughter company of Cortec® Corporation. Plant’s management is now investing in new polymer processing plant that is located near the existing facility. New investment will incorporate all the principles of the circular economy.
EcoCortec’s team is continuing its path of developing environmentally friendly corrosion protection films by utilizing latest green manufacturing technologies. Plant’s management purchased new 1000 m2 facility for polymer processing. New plant with VpCI® masterbatch production and new reprocessing equipment for recycling of waste into new materials will open in November this year. This will result in minimizing the disposal of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials as well as energy usage. This model of circular economy reduces air and water pollution. New facility will be divided in two production facilities with warehouses of raw material and finished goods:
1. Compounding and masterbatch production – with the state of the art, high performance compounding extruder, designed for processing biopolymers on world scale. This will enable EcoCortec’s sustainability and economic production.
2. Regranulation facility – with latest recycling line that will set new standards in recycling of materials that are difficult to process such as heavily printed films and very moist material.
The company also recently purchased new high tech blown film extrusion line for production of patented biodegradable ESD films for growing electric vehicles market. New BOR (bag on roll making machine) was installed. BOR machine will expand capabilities and enable wider assortment of products in more dimensions.
