MBA Polymers UK Limited, are delighted to become the UK’s first recycled plastic compounder of both Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) to be awarded EuCertPlast accreditation, the European-wide scheme that provides a common standard for post-consumer plastics recycling.
The main focus of the EuCertPlast scheme is on the transparency and traceability of recycled polymers in the supply chain and throughout the recycling process. By achieving this accreditation, we have been recognised for operating to the highest standards and for implementing best recycling and trading practices. We believe this will give our customers the confidence when specifying our recycled polymers, that they are produced to the highest quality as well as being fully traceable.
There is a requirement for a standardised scheme in the plastic recycling industry and this certification aims to separate the traders from the recyclers, working in accordance to the European Standard EN 15343:2007 to assess the practice and quality of output from a recycler.
Paul Mayhew, General Manager, MBA Polymers UK said:
“MBA Polymers UK Limited supports the movement towards mandatory recycled plastic content across all industries in order to support the circular economy and reduce plastic waste from entering the environment. We recognise that for this to be achieved there is a requirement from producers and brands to have assurances around the quality and traceability of post consumer derived polymer. EUCertplast aims to achieve this by integrating various audit schemes into one common standard whilst also determining the best recycling and trading practices too. We are proud to be awarded accreditation whilst processing some of the most complex waste streams in the World.”
