Biffa to begin commissioning of £16m Redcar expansion

Biffa will begin commissioning of a third HDPE line at its plastics recycling plant in Redcar next month, adding up to 24,000 tonnes of capacity to the facility.

The £16 million line will process post-consumer recyclable HDPE milk and juice bottles, transported in bulk from Biffa’s materials recycling facilities (MRFs).

Biffa said the plant equipment is now fully installed ahead of commissioning, and “full operation” should be achieved by March 2023, subject to the granting of a permit by the Environment Agency.

The growth of the plant will also see the creation of upwards of 20 new jobs, Biffa said.
