“We are thrilled to have been selected as a finalist for Plastics Recycling Business of the Year 2020. At a time where the effective management of plastic waste is in the spotlight, it is crucial that the correct legislative frameworks are created to stimulate the demand needed to ensure post-consumer plastics can be reintroduced into new products by the means of recycled content. This in turn will drive investment into the UK plastic recycling sector, helping create opportunities for plastic recyclers to develop consistent high-quality virgin replacement polymers to meet the growing demand of the market.”
