Major investment in Hungarian PVC recycling plant

Hungary – Hungarian vinyl flooring manufacturer Graboplast has started production at its new Euro 2.7 million (US$ 3.7 million) PVC recycling plant at Tatabánya in the north west of the country.

Said to achieve ‘a major production cost saving’, the facility has a capacity of 1000 tonnes per year and is designed to reduce raw material requirements at the company’s flooring plants in Tatabánya and Györ by 6-8%.

The technology includes a special grinding process that breaks PVC flooring into small pieces and then cools it to -100°C. The resulting glass-like material is then vaporised, allowing it to be used in the manufacture of new products.

The 600-square-metre processing hall was built with the help of EU and Hungarian government funds of almost Euro 800 000 (US$ 1.09 million).

Meanwhile, Graboplast has started building a new Euro 20 million (US$ 27 million) facility in Tatabánya for the production of luxury vinyl tile flooring.
