GISE and MBA held the official groundbreaking ceremony at the 18,000 square meter site in the Nansha Development Zone of Guangzhou on which GMP will build a 40,000-ton per year plastic recycling plant. The Nansha Development Area is one of the most rapidly developing economic zones in China and GMP will be joined by a new Toyota automobile plant, a GISE-JFE (large Japanese steel company) joint venture 400,000 ton per year steel plant, Honda and BASF. In fact, GE Plastics’ largest compounding plant in China is nearly next door.
