Viridor and PLASTIC ENERGY to build facility that recycles plastic into fuel

The new project is expected to be able to could convert up to 30,000 tonnes of plastic to oils every year

Nearly 30,000 tonnes of unrecycled plastic could be converted to recycled oils every year at a new plant, which would be the result of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by Viridor and PLASTIC Energy.

Low-density plastic film, a stream traditionally not recycled due to contamination, will be supplied by the waste management firm to a chemical recycling plant, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

The recycled oils produced from the plastic waste would be used as a feedstock to create virgin-quality recycled plastic material in collaboration with the chemical industry.
