Mura inks feedstock partnership with Elite Recycling for Hydro-PRT site

Elite will supply post-use plastic packaging to Mura Technology’s world-first hydrothermal advanced recycling facility

  • By ICN Bureau | June 03, 2024

Mura Technology, the global pioneer of a next generation advanced plastic recycling solution, announces the signing of a feedstock supply contract with Elite Recycling Solutions.

Elite will supply post-use plastic packaging to Mura Technology’s world-first hydrothermal advanced recycling facility at the Wilton International science park in Wilton, Teesside, UK, which is currently in its final commissioning phase and expected to commence operation in mid-2024. Using the unique Hydro-PRT process, Mura will convert the waste into valuable hydrocarbon products which can then be used to manufacture new plastic.

The agreement with Elite follows an existing agreement between Mura Technology and Geminor, who will act as the principal feedstock supplier for this first site.

Dr Steve Mahon, CEO of Mura Technology, commented: “We are delighted to partner with another industry-leading company in the waste management sector. Cross-sector collaboration of this kind is enabling us to turn post-use waste plastic into a valuable commodity used to create fossil-replacement feedstocks for the manufacture of new plastic products.”

Chris Smits, Managing Director at Elite Recycling Solutions, commented: “We’re really excited to be an approved UK-based commercial feedstock partner to Mura Technology. The relationship enables us to access this pioneering solution for our clients’ mixed, post-use and currently unrecyclable plastics. Mura Technology’s unique Hydro-PRT process will enable us to work closely with our clients to recycle unrecyclable plastics, reduce waste and increase recycling rates, and to deliver cost savings, as landfill and incineration taxes increase in the near future – all of which plays a key part in driving our clients environmental and sustainability credentials.”
