Keith Freegard, director of plastics recycler Axion Polymers, believes landfilling, as opposed to incineration, could be the best option for dealing with the UK’s waste plastic levels rising.
Volumes of carpet waste diverted from landfill in the country continue to increase, with 168,000 tonnes either reused, recycled or recovered for energy in 2017, a report from Carpet Recycling UK says.
Axion Polymers is asking for of larger demand for recycled materials across the nation after China’s decision to restrict imports of waste paper and plastics.
RecoMed (ran by Axion) has scooped the Chartered Institute of Waste Management’s (CIWM) Sustainability and Resource Award for Best Recycling Project 2017.
Improved physical properties will be assured, as Axion Polymers has re-formulated its recycled ABS polymer product.
