Post-use PVC recycling set to grow

The amount of post-use PVC that is recycled in Europe is set to greatly increase thanks to a new dedicated organisation.

Recovinyl, with funding from the Vinyl 2010 initiative of the European PVC Industry is targeting four regions for initial implementation of its system- Germany, France, Benelux and the UK.

After analysing the barriers to PVC recycling across Europe, it has concluded that there is adequate capacity to recycle post-use PVC but the low cost of landfill and the distributed nature of the waste stream makes it unattractive to segregate and collect.

xion Recycling director Roger Morton, the UK agent for the Recovinyl initiative will be discussing the key aspects of recycling at Glassex 2006- the UK’s only dedicated event for the window, door and conservatory industries.
