Biffa Plastic recycling

Plastic Recycling

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%.

The Queen's Award for Innovation

In 2010 Biffa Polymers was very proud to be conferred the Queen’s Award for Excellence in Innovation for our rHDPE food grade facility. The Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises a company for an innovative product or service that has been on the market for at least 2 years. To gain this prestigious award you must also have demonstrated commercial success as a result of your innovative product or service.

Innovation from Biffa Polymers

In 2011, Biffa Polymers achieved another world first by opening a mixed plastics plant producing polymer grades from rigid post consumer packaging. To date our polymers facility has reprocessed over 3 billion plastic bottles.
