UK plastics processing facility opened / Site expansion plans
UK plastics recycling company Vanden Recycling has opened a new processing plant in Whittlesey / UK and plans to expand it. The company is part of the global Vanden Group (Kowloon / Hong Kong;, which also has offices in Finland and Australia. In addition, the company has secured land adjacent to the facility to create additional material storage space.

The new facility can process ABS, HDPE, LDPE, PC, PET, PMMA, PP, PS, PVC and other types of plastic. It has three soundproofed granulation lines with a combined throughput of up to 30 t of plastic a day, when operating on a single shift. The plant can handle multiple plastic streams and change set-up according to customer requirements. It also has machinery for shredding and baling, with front-end material inspection and preparation areas.

Vanden collects scrap plastic from manufacturing, distribution and retail companies. These are recycled before being sold back for manufacturing in UK, European and other export markets. The scraps come from post-industrial plastic waste from the vacuum forming, blow moulding, injection moulding, printing, retail and logistics sectors.
