Dekura Announces Six-Figure Investment

Dekura, the UK’s leading PVC-U recycler, has announced six figure investment in its recycling plant as part of the first phase of major growth plans.

As an accredited and full member of Recovinly, Dekura provides a complete recycling service with the capacity to collect and recycle both post-industrial and post-consumer waste.

It has announced this summer that it has completed the first phase of investment to bring increased operational efficiency to its Telford recycling plant.

Richard Morris, managing director, Dekura, said: “As a pioneer of PVC recycling technology in the UK we have already delivered multi-million pound investment.  Things, however, move on and we’re committed to continual improvement across all aspects of our operation.

“This investment increases our capacity and efficiency but also quality of recyclate and that brings new flexibility of use in a new generation of advanced and sustainable products. At a time when oil and raw material prices are on the increase this is something that we believe is of significant importance for the whole of the PVC building products industry.”

The first recycler to recover not only post-industrial but post-consumer PVC-U in the UK, this latest round of investment from Dekura includes new compounders, storage silos, resin silos and cold mixers. Alone this represents a spend on new efficiency totaling almost half a million pounds.

Morris concluded: “Recovery of off cuts and end of life material has always been important for the PVC building products industry, it would have simply been excluded from markets had it not put its house in order environmentally.

“But it’s taken on dual importance not just in supporting environmental sustainability but economic sustainability. Recycled material has a critical part to play in warding off price hikes driven by rising raw material prices at all levels of the industry.”
