Bottle to Bottle Facility (B2B)
Phoenix Technologies - Bowling Green, Ohio
IPS was hired as the design build contractor Phoenix Technologies’ new 66,000 square-foot B2B (bottle-to-bottle) facility.
This facility will bring in 10,000 lbs or 2.5 tons per hour of recycled plastic bottles to then turn them into plastic pellets. First, recycled plastic bottles are sorted into silos, then they are grinded down into flakes, which then goes through a machine that creates the pellet. The pellets are loaded on trucks and sold to plastic bottle manufacturers such as coca-cola.
The new pre-engineered building will have all the equipment for this process but there is also offices, a cafeteria, locker rooms, maintenance/utility room, storage, and meeting rooms. Our team is handling the sitework/concrete, building erection, mechanical, electrical, data and controls for this project.
