LONDON (ICIS)--Denmark-based recycled polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET) flake producer Expladan Recycling AS expects to restart its flake production next week, following a fire at the plant one month ago, a source from the company said on Monday.

Flake production at the plant in Harlev, Denmark has been stopped for the past four weeks, because of a fire outbreak.

“We have had a stop for four weeks and we expect to get started next week,” the source said.

The source said their high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) extruder had been burnt down. “At the moment, we are not producing HDPE and PP,” it added.

Expladan produces clear, blue and multi-coloured flakes from its plant.
