Nurel is strengthening its commitment to sustainability with the addition of a third production line at its Inzea biopolymers site.
Nurel started its bioplastics industrial project in 2015 with an initial investment in a highly sophisticated, technologically advanced facility, established based on the results of an ambitious R&D program started in 2010.
After receiving a widespread acceptance by the European and overseas markets, a second production unit was built in 2018 at the companies premises that served to increase volume and to complete the Inzea product range.
Inzea bioplastics are bio-based, biodegradable and compostable materials and are the materials of choice for shopping bags, food packaging, single-use utensils or agricultural films manufacture. Inzea is the sustainable solution that the plastics industry needs.
Now, the company has announced the installation of a third production plant that will help to fulfil the strong demand these products have in the Latin American markets. The new plant will strengthen Nurel's position in the bioplastics market, making its facilities one of the largest in Europe. The new production unit boosts Nurel Biopolymers’ production capacity to 26,000 tons per year.
Nurel is part of Spain’s SAMCA Group. The investments serve to strengthen the biopolymers division of Nurel and are part of a much more ambitious investment plan planned for the company.
