Enva is one of the UK’s leading recyclers of waste plastics. Specialising in small household appliances, (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling - WEEE), Enva creates the highest quality compounds and recycled polymers for use in the manufacture of new components and products, diverting as much waste plastics as possible from landfill.
Enva's investment in its plastic recycling facilities has been extensive, doubling our capacity and creating one of the UK's largest and most advanced plastic recycling facilities. As well as our flagship recycling facilities in Bourne where we manufacture our high quality plastic compounds, we also collect and recycle lower grade household and commercial plastic wastes at facilities in the East Midlands and Glasgow in Scotland.
Enva’s best-in-class dedicated plastic and small mixed WEEE recycling facility in Bourne, Leicestershire is one of the largest dedicated small mixed WEEE facilities in the UK. Split across two adjacent sites, that firstly take in, sort and process waste plastics including WEEE. Then secondly, convert this waste plastic into high quality compounds namely, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS) and High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) for use in the manufacture of new plastic products and components as a comparable, yet cost effective, alternative to virgin plastic.
The use of recycled polymer has a number of environmental benefits, that include, reduced pressure on natural resources and the associated energy consumption from raw material extraction and the development of a more sustainable supply chain.
Supported by comprehensive specifications and REACH data sheets.
