Recresco Glass Recycling Incorporated Into The BA Glass Group
BA Glass and the Gent Family have reached an agreement to integrate the glass recycling operations of Recresco into the BA Glass Group. This transaction represents the association of a leading glass packaging manufacturer with a glass recycling operation which is managed by a team with several decades of proven experience.
For several years, the BA Group has been setting ambitious CO2 reduction targets, incorporating a sustainability roadmap into both its operational and market strategies. The incorporation opens the possibility to develop the Group’s current recycling operations supported by the extensive knowledge of Recresco’s team through collaboration.
Sandra Santos, CEO of BA Glass commented: “The acquisition of Recresco is an extremely valuable opportunity to access high-quality recycled glass, representing a significant step towards our goal of reducing 50% of CO2 emissions by 2035. Incorporating a higher percentage of recycled glass in our products, will allow us to be nearer to close the glass loop and make the glass the most sustainable packaging material in the world.”
Tim Gent, Recresco’s General Manager added: “Partnering with BA Glass represents a unique opportunity for our team to participate actively in future recycling projects in other geographies, where BA Group has its operations, leveraging our know-how and experience in the recycling of glass.”
