Biffa plastic recycling - queens award

Queen’s Award for Excellence

Biffa Polymers was awarded the Queen’s Award for Excellence in Innovation in 2009 for its food grade facility specialising in the recycling of HDPE milk bottles. The facility is designed to process 50k tonnes of material through its three business processes.

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

Biffa Polymers was the first company in the world to develop a commercially available food grade rHDPE from recycled milk bottles. We are also the largest European producer of food-grade rHDPE, which is estimated to be in 85% of the plastic bottles used in the supply of fresh milk to the UK.

We aim to help our customers divert their recyclable plastics from landfill, in order to improve the way that used plastic is recovered and re-used.
