With this new sorting plant for lightweight packaging in the "Rohstoffpark-Enns", around 100,000 tons of lightweight packaging per year from the yellow garbage cans and the yellow bags are to be processed for subsequent recycling from 2025 onwards. The joint venture partners are thus taking an important step towards achieving the EU recycling targets from 2025.
"We are pleased that we were able to assist ARA in this important joint venture project for more climate protection to achieve the EU recycling targets from 2025," said Sascha Hödl, Corporate/M&A Partner at Schoenherr.
