According to the 4/26/99 Plastics News ("Coke building recycling
facility," p. 42):

"Sydney based Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd is spending more than US$13 million
on a plant and equipment to recycle 26 million pounds of PC PET bottles per
year, using a US developed recycling process.

"The process cleans post-consumer flake into food-container grade
resin. It was developed by Phoenix Technologies, a Bowling Green Ohnio PET
recycler....The process is now owned by Coca-Cola Amatil.
"[CCA] siad although it previously had incorporated some recycled
content in PET bottles, the current venture will allow 25% recycled
content, the firm's most concerted effort to date."
