£3.5 million plant to boost central wood recycling

Wood recycling across Central England will be boosted by a new 100,000 tonnes per annum facility being developed in Nottinghamshire.

Run by R Plevin & Sons in Elkesley, the £3.5 million plant will be used to manufacture a variety of recycled wood products, including high quality animal bedding, feedstock for panel board manufacturing and fuel for renewable energy production.

The site will also feature a green waste composting facility.

It has been part-funded by a £612,500 grant from the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) and, WRAP material sector manager for wood Tom Fourcade said: "Plevin's new Elkesley facility is a great example of the type of project that WRAP looks to fund - where sophisticated reprocessing and grading plant can produce a range of added value products.

"This will be a class leading wood recycling facility of national significance."
