According toflexpack.org, UK recycling technology developer Enval has secured new premises in the recently designated Enterprise Zone at Alconbury, England. The buildings will house the world’s first commercial-scale plant using Enval’s patented process for the recycling of laminated plastic and aluminium packaging.
Multinational brand owners Nestlé, Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez
International are part of a group of stakeholders that has backed the
development of the facility, underlining the potential that Enval’s technology
has demonstrated for improving the recyclability of flexible laminates.
The site will feature a fully operational, continuous process plant based on
Enval’s Microwave-Induced Pyrolysis system for recovering valuable materials
from foil-containing flexible packaging. Enval intends to use the plant to
demonstrate the new technology at full commercial scale to other potential
users working in the recycling industry in the expectation that similar plants
will be built in other parts of the UK and further afield.
