Biffa Polymer’s Teesside recycling plant is to add a new line to
double its rHDPE output.
The business will invest £6.5 million and is set to bring more jobs to the region. The proposed increase of rHDPE will provide the capacity required by the market to meet growing demand.
Chris Hanlon, commercial director of Biffa Polymers, commented: “Enabling us to double our
output, this investment in our facilities and the additional infrastructure it provides will also mean that more scrap plastic generated by UK households can be processed here in the UK rather than being send abroad for processing.
“We remain committed to continued investment and improvement in our facilities and our expert team are open to exploring possible growth strategies that will enable us to enhance our offering and increase our processing capacity in future.
“With this level of investment, this will undoubtedly create new
jobs but we are not sure how many yet.”
