United Kingdom – Veka Recycling is investing almost Euro 1.2 million (US$ 1.6 million) in its south-east England facility to produce high-quality recyclate suitable for PVC extruded products.
A new compounding line will enable the company to supply European markets with PVC pellets derived from post-industrial or post-consumer window frame material. According to the firm, this is in addition to the existing supply of both pellet and micronised PVC from its German and French factories.
According to Veka’s managing director Tony Cattini, the investment will help to meet continuing demand for recycled content in new products with all the associated economic and environmental benefits for manufacturers and consumers. ‘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,’ he says.
