Cortec Corp. announced the expansion of its EcoCortec plant in Croatia. EcoCortec manufactures vapor-phase corrosion inhibitor films and bags.

EcoCortec purchased an approximately 10,700 ft2 (1,000 m2) polymer processing facility that includes reprocessing equipment for the recycling of waste into new materials. The facility, which will open in November 2022, is expected to help the company minimize the disposal of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials and energy usage. It will be divided in two production facilities within the Croatia plant with warehouses of raw materials and finished goods.

The company also purchased a blown film extrusion line for the production of biodegradable anti-static films for the growing electric vehicle market.
