Smurfit Kappa expands its global network of paper recycling plants with a new facility in Malaga, Spain, which expects to process more than 30.000 tons of paper annually. The plant is designed to ensure the highest standards in health and safety. Its proximity to the city center makes it an ideal strategic partner for the city of Malaga.
Its fleet of ecological vehicles will collect the paper and cardboard generated in homes and businesses. Then they will be transferred to this plant in Malaga to classify them and, later, send them to the factory that Smurfit Kappa has in Mengíbar, where they will be converted into paper that will be used to create new packaging. Smurfit Kappa has a longstanding commitment to best recycling practices and a global network of specialist recycling plants. As a result, the company recently acquired a 12.000 m2 site in Blackburn, UK, with the aim of significantly increasing its recycling capacities in this region as well.
