Consortium of multinationals to back laminate recycling plant

Cambridge Enterprise portfolio company Enval, a leading provider of recycling and environmental technology solutions, has partnered with some well-known, consumer goods brand owners to support the construction of a commercial scale facility for Enval’s patented material recovery technology.

Enval’s patented technology offers a genuine recycling route for flexible laminate packaging that has, to date, been unrecyclable. The award-winning technology separates the material into its constituent components, producing clean aluminium ready for introduction into the secondary aluminium supply chain and hydrocarbons that can be used as fuel or chemical feedstock.

The recycling process is economically and environmentally viable and offers a much more beneficial outcome for waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill or incinerated.

By participating in this consortium, our partners are clearly demonstrating their commitment to tackling the environmental consequences arising from their own products’ end-of-life.

“Enval is delighted to announce the formation of the Enval Consortium,” said David Boorman, Business Development Director at Enval. “By participating in this consortium, our partners are clearly demonstrating their commitment to tackling the environmental consequences arising from their own products’ end-of-life. Their support and involvement are vital components of our business development strategy and pave the way for the rapid commercialisation of the Enval technology”.

The Enval Process opens the way for packaging systems based on these materials such as pouches for drinks and petfood, aseptic drink cartons and laminate tubes, to be completely recycled. Capable of handling material either as scrap from the production and filling processes or post-consumer waste, the Enval recycling technology will strongly enhance the green credentials of these types of packaging.
