An investment of £1 million has been made by VEKA Recycling in its closed loop facility that produces high quality PVC-U recyclate.
A new compounding line installed at its Kent site enables VEKA Recycling to supply UK and European markets with PVC-U pellet derived from post-industrial or post-consumer window frame material.
VEKA Recycling managing director Tony Cattini said the investment in UK capacity will help to meet continuing demand for recycled content in new products with all the associated economic and environmental benefits for manufacturers and consumers.
He added: “It also underlines our commitment to progressive growth and development in this sector as well as continuing to offer a sustainable and reliable outlet for PVC window waste.
“We have a new string to our bow now we can supply directly from our UK factory, offering a quality and consistent supply to manufacturers.
“More businesses are recognising the tangible economic and environmental benefits of recycling PVC and we have already had interest from a number of major players in the UK. With our new push into the extrusion market, we can now offer a closed loop solution in our home market.”
