Enva's compounds are turned into products for a range of industries

Plastic recyclers Enva has doubled its output capacity following a £1.8m investment at its Bourne facility in Lincolnshire.

Enva sorts plastics found in small domestic appliances and other WEEE products which are converted into regrinds and compounds used by injection moulding and extrusion companies.

These are then used to make a range of products including including packaging and coat hangers.

Enva will now be able to produce over 2,000 tonnes of extruded compound per month, helping its customers to increase their use of recycled material and reduce its reliance on virgin resources.

It will also reduce the amount of material being sold as ‘regrind’.

Steve Bell, Enva Plastics general manager, said: “This will enable our customers to increase the environmental and commercial benefits associated with the use of recycled product. It will also give us greater capability to custom match the colour or physical properties of compounds to our customers’ specific requirements.”
