WES Greenstar: Grant for mixed household plastics recycling plant

The Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP, Banbury / UK; www.wrap.org.uk) has awarded a GBP 1.19m (EUR 1.36m) grant to the Greenstar WES Group (Redcar / UK; www.thewesgroup.co.uk) for the construction of a reprocessing facility for non-bottle household plastic packaging. The 20,000 t/y plant will recycle margarine tubs, yoghurt pots and meat trays, handling waste collected from households by local authorities.

Construction of the facility, which will be able to process natural and mixed colour PP, PET and PE, as well as PS and PVC, is set to start next year, with full operational capacity scheduled for 2013. All the recycled materials will be sold for industrial applications.
