PVC-U recycling ‘stable’ and back to pre-recession levels

21/09/2011


Stability has returned to the market following the recession, according to the UK’s largest independent PVC-U recycler, PVC Recycling.
Prices crashed in 2008 – across most recyclates – and while they have steadily recovered volumes have been low and it’s not always been easy to sell material.
But over the last six months in PVC-U recycling this has changed, according to co-director Joanne Murray. She said: “Before you didn’t know whether you were going to sell anything from one month to the next – you had such ups and downs. Now we could sell everything ten times over.”
PVC Recycling recycles 7,000 tonnes of post-consumer deglazed window and door frames a year at its 60,000 sq ft site in Cheshire and has capacity to double this.The firm is so confident it has just invested £280,000 in a state-of-the-art shredder for processing PVC and taken on four more staff.
PVC Recycling is able recycle the lowest quality and even the most heavily-contaminated PVC-U frames. Its processing methods produce a material – chip or melt-filtrated pellet - suitable for manufacturing.
Products made from 100% recycled PVC perform exactly the same as those made from virgin material. The carbon footprint of recycling end-of-life PVC products is 94% less than producing from virgin.
