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.
