Enval, which has developed a method for recycling laminated plastic and aluminium packaging, is to open its first processing facility. The premises will be situated on the recently designated Enterprise Zone in Alconbury.

The company, backed by Nestlé, Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez International, will install its microwave induced pyrolysis (MIP) system for recovering materials from foil-laminated flexible packaging

“Enval is delighted to be locating our first commercial scale plant at the Enterprise Zone at Alconbury,” said David Boorman, the firm’s business development director. “We know of many companies within the resource recycling sector that have found the planning process difficult to navigate.

“Enval’s experience, with the support and expertise offered by our local authority partners and the Enterprise Zone itself, has been an extremely positive one.”

Enval originally formed as a spin-out from the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
