Pioneering plastic bottle recycling plant to double capacity
August 5th, 2012 – UK – The world’s first recycling firm to use food-grade recycled PET and HDPE from plastic bottle waste has announced a £12 million expansion of their Dagenham based plant. Closed Loop Recycling stand at the forefront of plastics purification as the most advanced facility in the UK, and are set to create and support 100 jobs and double the capacity of its recycling plant. Their expansion will divert 100,000 tonnes of carbon emissions on completion and will increase food-grade HDPE output, as well as minimizing the harmful effects of recyclable resources on the environment by bringing used plastics back to food-grade standard.  Bdaily
