"This plant has the capacity to recycle 24 000 tonnes of used liquid packaging cartons per year, however, the plant is not yet running at full capacity. At full capacity, this plant can save 65 240m3 of landfill space per year, which equates to saving approximately 11 400 tonnes of carbon emissions."
