Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) officially opened its multi-million pound recycling venture in the UK yesterday, the first such facility in the country, to more than double the amount of bottle grade recycled PET (rPET) created by the nation.

The ₤15m (€18.65m) site in the country of Lincolnshire was opened by Environment Minister Lord Taylor of Holbeach and will support CCE's commitment to to use 25% rPET in all its bottles by the end of 2012.

Continuum Recycling is joint venture between CCE and ECO Plastics on the latter's existing site - which is now claimed to be the world's largest plastics reprocessing facility.

The 'closed loop' site reflects a commitment to collect Coke and other PET bottles and incorporate them into new bottles for sale within weeks.
