Extrupet was set up in 2005 to spearhead the recycling of Post-Consumer PET bottles recovered from the waste stream. Its state of the art recycling facility employs the latest technology developed and manufactured in Europe. It continues to be a leader in its field on the African continent and is continuously being upgraded both in technological and capacity terms.
