Promateris Invests in Bioplastic Production Capacity

Promateris has invested more than EUR 10 million in developing a state-of-the art facility near Bucharest, Romania, dedicated to processing bioplastics derived from renewable resources. Following this investment, Promateris becomes the leading production capacity in Central and Eastern Europe.

Having more than 60 years of experience in the packaging manufacturing field, Promateris started manufacturing bio-based and compostable packaging in 2017 and developed a wide range of products, targeted for modern retail stores, waste management and distribution companies. Promateris will soon start the production of bio-based compostable gloves and will diversify its portfolio with currier and zipper bags. The company distributes its products in more than 10 European countries, such as: Greece, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Poland or Norway.

The Promateris plant in Buftea is highly efficient, with performance equipment and experienced technicians that insure a seamless workflow. The plant is designed to reach high standards of quality, and environmental and safety requirements. Recently, Promateris achieved the goal of having 0% industrial waste, through installing a bioplastic recycling line, reducing waste through recovery and re-conversion, in accordance with the principles of the circular economy.

Says Tudor Georgescu, CEO of Promateris: “Increasing production capacity and efficiency was determined by increased market demand for compostable products. This is a natural step in the company’s evolution, developing a greater range of products for different applications, with an increasingly high content of renewable materials. This way we can integrate research, agriculture and industry in order to develop solutions with a reduced environmental impact.”
