Artenius is the trading name of the PET & Recycling Division of La Seda de Barcelona S.A (LSB), the industrial plastic packaging group. It consists of four PET resin plants located in Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey and two recycling plants in Italy and Spain.
Artenius is a company with strong commitment to added-value services, quality, good governance and sustainability in all its processes and products. It works following the LSB group’s main sustainability guidelines:
- Innovative packaging solutions in recycled PET;
- Reducing the environmental impact through reduction in CO2 emissions, energy consumption and minimising waste;
- Creating economic and social values.
Artenius is the second largest European PET producer and over the coming years intends to remain the supplier and partner of choice for any PET-based application which the market may demand. It has two business units: Commodities and Tech Polymers. This latter business unit is focused in a full range of PET copolyesters, PET homopolyesters highly modified.
As a result of its expertise in PET resins, the company can offer a portfolio of innovative and state-of-the-art resins formulations. At the end of January Artenius developed the new resin "Artenius Elite" made from recycled PET and virgin PET raw material. It can mainly be used for the production of beverage packaging, including water and carbonated drinks, but it is also suitable for food packaging.
Artenius shares not only LSB’s inheritance of more than 50 years’ experience in the polyester business, but polyester technology background acquired from companies, such as ICI, DuPont, AdvanSA, EASTMAN, Radici, AMCOR and others.
Artenius helps its own consumers improve their processes and/or develop new projects with the optimum PET solution for different uses.
