Enval reveals location of laminate recycling plant

Recycling technology developer Enval has announced that its laminate recycling plant will be located at Alconbury, near Huntingdon

In a statement, the firm said that it had secured premises on a former airfield at Alconbury Enterprise Zone, near Huntingdon.

The buildings will house, what the firm calls, the world’s first commercial scale plant utilising Enval’s patented process for the recycling of laminated plastic and aluminium packaging. The facility will be used to showcase this process.

Brand giants

Multi-national brand owners Nestlé, Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez International are part of a group of stakeholders that has backed the development of this facility.

Enval said that this underlines “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.

“Enval is delighted to be locating our first commercial scale plant at the Enterprise Zone at Alconbury,” said David Boorman, Enval’s business development director. “We know of many companies within the resource recycling sector that have found the planning process difficult to navigate. Enval’s experience, with the support and expertise offered by our local authority partners and the Enterprise Zone itself, has been an extremely positive one.”

Jobs

Enval said that the Enterprise Zone at Alconbury is an area established specifically to generate economic and employment opportunities in the region around Huntingdon.

Enval’s planning application was backed by the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (GCCP).

Cambridgeshire County Council approved the new development stating that Enval “will create the first job opportunities within the Alconbury Enterprise Zone”.
