Avangard Innovative LP will invest $10 million in a new plant to recycle low density polyethylene film (LDPE) at its existing plant in Houston. Construction of the 35,000 sq. ft. plant will begin in June 2017, with production expected to begin in August 2017 and reach full capacity by October 2017. Total annual processing capacity will be 48 million pounds. This new plant will allow the company to produce post-consumer resin from the material it already handles and create recyclable LDPE pellets.
