AERT commences construction on plastic recycling
facility in Oklahoma
Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies, Inc.
(AERT), a plastics recycler and manufacturer of
green composite building products, announced that
construction has begun on its 70,000 square foot
plastic recycling facility on a 60-acre site near
Crossland Construction has started the initial dirt
and runoff retention work on the site, which will
be followed by construction of new buildings and
infrastructure. The new state-of-the-art polyethylene
film and packaging waste recycling facility is being
built next to an existing hog feed facility that
is being converted for use in the project.
A 70,000 square foot building is scheduled to be
delivered by the manufacturer, Metco Supply, in
“The plant will wash, clean, and separate polyethylene
materials such as polyethylene food packaging and
wrapping films and will utilize AERT recycling technology
to provide us with consistently lower cost raw material.
As this plant helps us to contain our costs by sourcing
our own raw material, the pricing power we gain
will benefit consumers and the expense reduction
will benefit our stockholders,” stated AERT President,
Tim Morrison. “Upon successful completion of the
Watts construction project, AERT will further demonstrate
that sustainability and affordability are the hallmark
of the AERT difference.”
The company will be working with the Birkhill Group
and the AGORACOM on-line community to keep investors
updated on the progress of construction. AERT expects
that this facility will be in initial operation
by the end of Q1 2009.
