Material Recycling Facilities: Updating Technology - Which Route to Take?

Tuesday 03 April 2012, 09:00 - 15:00

Material Recycling Facilities (MRFs) are increasingly important in providing quality materials to industry and reducing the need for virgin feedstock. Although MRF capacity in the UK is expanding, it is unevenly distributed and investment in further capacity will be needed as demand increases.

MRFs have a key role to play in the creation of high quality/high value recyclate streams that can be used as feedstock materials by a range of industries. However, does the technology used in the process make a difference on the quality of material produced?

Envirolink is holding this topical event to debate this question of mechanical sorting versus hand picking between key players in the industry, so that delegates can get a better understanding of the requirements for material recycling. Delegates also have the opportunity to experience a working state of the art MRF in operation.

Venue: UPM Shotton, Weighbridge Road, Shotton, Deeside, Flintshire, CH5 2LL
