Hoechst Celanese suspends bottle recycling operation.

Hoechst Celanese, Spartanburg, SC, is suspending the operation of its polyester bottle recycling facility while it re-evaluates technical aspects of the process. The single bottle-processing line, located at its Spartanburg site, is designed to separate other plastics, notably polyvinyl chloride, from polyester to permit the production of pure polyester flakes. Since being brought onstream in late 1992, the line has not met quality and capacity expectations. The suspension of operations does not affect the company's methanolysis recycling facility nor its expanding line of "Encore" recycle-content polyethylene terephthalate resins.
