MBA receives first delivery from new EMR recycling plant

EMR load and recycling team

Our processing plant in Worksop, UK, has just received the first load of automotive shredder residue (ASR) from our JV partner EMR’s new recycling plant. The delivery of 20 tonnes of plastic is now being processed and will be transformed into high quality plastic resin for use in manufacturing. EMR opened its new Oldbury plant, which is the largest in the UK, in February 2014.

“This first delivery marks the beginning of an exciting new phase of expansion for MBA,” says Nigel Hunton, CEO, MBA Polymers. “We’re delighted to be working with our partner EMR to scale up our production capacity in the UK, and look forward to a steady stream of high quality feedstock from Oldbury.”

The news of this first delivery follows the announcement in January 2014 that MBA plans to expand its Worksop production capacity by 40% to 50,000 tonnes a year, with the support a multi-million pound cash injection.
