Tetra Pak and local Axjo are building a factory together to recycle the plastic Poly Al from Tetra Pak's packaging

It is about recycling and it is about new technology to succeed in taking a leading position within it. It is the packaging company Tetra Pak that has entered into a collaboration with Axjo, headquartered in Gislaved, and together the two companies will build a 10,000 square meter factory in Gislaved. In the factory, the Poly Al plastic from Tetra Pak's packaging is to be taken care of by Axjo - which makes, among other things, cable drums from it.
- It will be Northern Europe's largest recycling plant for PolyAl, notes Alex Henriksson.
It is a substance used as a barrier against acids and moisture in Tetra Pak's beverage cartons, which will be taken care of by Axjo in Gislaved.
The substance is found in the packaging that private individuals recycle in their bins and which is then driven to Fiskeby, where the paper in the packaging itself is burned away and the plastic is recycled and collected in large bales, which are driven to the factory in Gislaved.
The unique thing about the factory, which is expected to be ready and put into use in 2025, is that you will be able to do everything there, from the plastic arriving at the factory to the new products being ready.
- We do everything in a single line, which is unique. We are very careful not to use too many resources and we do not wash anything with water. We don't want to create problems at the other end, says Jacob Nilsson, CEO at Axjo.
Axjo produces cable packaging, coils, which are needed for cables used to connect the wireless community.

    in australia there is no facility that can recycle Tetra Pak waste. someone i know actually started making his own soy milk when he unearthed this knowledge. i’m curious about the metal content used on the “silver” inner liner of some terra pak packaging. is it aluminium? what is the metallic content by element and what are you doing with the metallic compounds/elements in your packaging?

                      The collaboration between Tetra Pak and Axjo to build a recycling factory for Poly Al plastic from Tetra Pak's packaging is a significant step towards addressing the issue of plastic waste and promoting circularity. By establishing Northern Europe's largest recycling plant for PolyAl, the project aims to efficiently handle the plastic barrier used in Tetra Pak's beverage cartons. The factory's unique approach of performing all recycling processes in a single line, without excessive resource consumption or water usage, demonstrates a commitment to sustainability. This initiative aligns with the broader goal of combating climate change by reducing plastic waste and promoting responsible recycling methods
