Biffa Polymers is the leading polymer recycling facility dedicated to providing you with tailored solutions for the safe disposal of plastics, whilst minimising their effects on the environment.
Biffa Polymers constructed the world’s first commercially available rHDPE food grade production plant in 2008. The facility is designed to process 50k tonnes of material through its three business processes. This was a ground breaking process which creates rHDPE from recycled milk bottles. The UK dairy sector targets inclusion of 50% recycled materials in milk bottles in 2020 - currently this is at 15% - 20%.
