Axion recycling systems shortlisted for Plastic Industry Awards

  • 18 Sep 2017

Axion Polymers has been shortlisted for Best Recycled Product and Best Technology Application at the upcoming Plastic Industry Awards 2017.

The Manchester-based plastics recycler has been shortlisted as a double finalist, receiving praise for its ability to recycle and deliver quality polymer products to customers with ‘as good as virgin’ standards.

Axpoly PP51 polymer

Axion’s Axpoly PP51 polymer is in the running for ‘Best Recycled Product’. The company has been shortlisted as a finalist in conjunction with its customer, 1 Env Solutions, for its application of the system.

Axpoly recycled polymers can be used as a direct replacement for virgin polymer, or combined with virgin polymers for use in demanding applications, such as the automotive sector.

Axion’s Director, Keith Freegard, comments on the product’s success: ‘Our quality-controlled product has a measured carbon impact, offers consistent regular properties and is delivered reliably.’

Advanced recycling products and processes

The company has also been nominated for ‘Best Technology Application’, for its advanced, continuous process for materials recycling from end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) at its Shredder Waste Advanced Processing Plant (SWAPP).

The facility, which is based at Trafford Park, delivers a 95% recycling and recovery rate for cars, creating a circular economic model for automotive materials.

‘Having applied good chemical engineering process principles, we treat the incoming material as a mixture of resources that need to be separated in an innovative manner,’ explains Keith. 

Overall, the company’s process has increased recycling of non-metallic materials and plastics that make up 20-30% by mass of ELVs.

‘Our products and processes work because our team are motivated and committed to delivering exactly what our customers want,’ Keith concludes.
