Based at the Wilton International site, in Teesside, North East England, ReNew ELP, a subsidiary of Mura Technology will use the HydroPRS™ technology platform to chemically recycle end-of-life plastic. The HydroPRS™ process uses supercritical water to break down post-consumer plastics into a range of valuable liquid hydrocarbon products including naphtha, gas oils and heavy wax residue, all essential building blocks in the manufacturing of new plastics and other materials. Unlike traditional Mechanical Recycling, there is no limit to the number of times plastic can be recycled using this process, in addition it is capable of processing all plastic waste types, including difficult to recycle material such as composite films.

At this site, px group and ReNew ELP will initially process over to 20,000 tons of waste plastic each year, during phase 1 of operations. The site has scope and planning permission for additional processing lines, which would take its processing capability to over 80,000 tonnes per year. The announcement marks the start of px Group and ReNew ELP’s working relationship. px Group is itself headquartered in Teesside and owns and operates Saltend Chemicals Park in Hull. px Group was selected as Renew ELP’s O&M partner as a result of its exemplary health and safety track record, its long-standing O&M nationwide expertise, and the fact that it is a local company.

The contract will directly lead to the creation of around 30 new highly skilled jobs on the site. The contract is scheduled to begin before the end of the year, which is commensurate with the completion of the construction phase of the project at the Wilton International site. Neil Chapman, Commercial Director at px Group will lead the project on behalf of px Group and will work closely with the Renew ELP leadership team at its ground-breaking plant.
