Enviroplast and Canada Fibers partners to decrease (density) and recycle the plastic film
Enviroplast and Canada Fibers Ltd. Announced that they are entering into an exclusive supply agreement to recover and recycle plastic film. The strategic partnership between the two industry leaders is a game changer as the requirement for more Canadian-based plastic recycling solutions has increased following the implementation of China’s National Sword policy, which banned imports of 24 types of waste material, including plastic film.
Enviroplast is an industry leader in the production of pure consistent low-density polyethylene (LDPE) recycled pellets, which are used as new raw material by plastic film makers. Toronto, Ontario based CFL is a leading provider of material recovery and recycling services using advanced technology to uniformly recover high-quality materials. This exclusive agreement will see CFL supply high-quality post-consumer plastic film to Enviroplast’s new state-of-the-art facility in Vaughan, Ontario, which is to be commissioned in Q3 2019. CFL is starting to ramp up supply to Enviroplast’s Anjou, Quebec facility this month in preparation.
Enviroplast and CFL strategic partnership demonstrate a successful collaboration between two major players in the recycling industry whose ongoing investments in technologies have helped drive made-in-Canada recycling solutions amidst international challenges.
Mathieu Séguin, CEO of Enviroplast stated, “Between the two Enviroplast facilities, this domestic market revolution allows for the recycling of up to 15,000 metric tonnes annually of plastic film a year following an investment of $25,000,000. With CFL being able to provide us a clean and pure stream of plastic film, we are able to produce a high-quality LDPE pellet to meet growing demand for pure, sustainable, recycled raw material.”
Mark Badger, Executive Vice President of CFL added, “CFL and Enviroplast’s significant investments in leading edge recovery and recycling technology will drive expansion of the domestic market for the recycling of plastic film. CFL’s continuous investment in innovative sorting technologies enables recovery of superior quality, clean streams of plastic film that meet the high standards of Enviroplast’s LDPE pellet production requirements.”
