AERT Expands Plastic Recycling

Springdale, AR— Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies Inc., announced that the company has recently commenced operation of its largest plastic recycling plant to date. The facility, located in Lowell, Arkansas cleans and processes recycled polyethylene plastics from a variety of industrial and post consumer sources. The recycled plastics are then transferred to the company’s extrusion and manufacturing facility in nearby Springdale, Arkansas where they are transformed into composite building materials. These building materials are used in a variety of homebuilding applications ranging from door rails to exterior fascia trim to decking and railing components. The Lowell facility’s capacity is 2 million pounds of recycled plastic materials per week or 100 million plus pounds per year.

The company’s products are made from approximately equal amounts of waste wood fiber and reclaimed polyethylene plastics, have been extensively tested, and are sold by leading national companies such as the Weyerhaeuser Company, Lowe’s Companies Inc. and Therma-Tru Corporation. The company’s composite building materials are marketed throughout North America as a low-maintenance alternative for wood and plastic filler materials for standard door components, windowsills, brick mould, fascia board, and residential and commercial decking and railing components under the trade names MoistureShield®, Weyerhaeuser Choice-Dek® and Weyerhaeuser ChoiceDek® Premium.
