WRAP launches open tender for manufacturing industry

An open tender has been launched by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) inviting bids which will increase the use of recycled materials in the manufacturing industry.

The move forms part of WRAPs newly announced manufacturing programme, which aims to maximise the recyclate used in UK manufacturing through a number of major shifts from virgin to recycled material.

Aiming to build on the organisation’s successful work in developing markets for recycled resources, tenders are being invited for studies with two phases.

Successful applicants will incorporate a general analysis or ‘scoping study’ of manufacturing in the UK and a detailed assessment of significant opportunities for converting manufacturers to specify recycled raw materials.

WRAP manufacturing development project manager Gerrard Fisher said: “This is an exciting part of WRAPs new business plan which aims to deliver major projects that switch the industry to buying recycled raw materials.

“Many organisations are now practicing good management of their recyclable wastes and reducing the amount they landfill, now we’re targeting manufacturing companies to significantly increase the recycled content of their products and help close the loop in the UK.”

Bids are welcome from single organisations or teams of manufacturing experts that have appropriate experience and knowledge, with the closing date for applications Monday 3 June 2006.

For full details, email amanda.brewerton@wrap.org.uk, quoting the reference MDD001.
