Plastic recyclers Recycling Technologies has opened a new headquarters and manufacturing facility in Stirling Court, Swindon.

North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson helped open the 25,000 sq ft factory which will provide over 300 jobs, including the set up of an apprenticeship programme.

The new factory will focus on developing and manufacturing the RT7000 plastic recycling machine which coverts plastic waste back into an oil called Plaxx, ready to be turned into a new plastic.

Currently unrecycled materials such as laminated food pouches, crisp packets and black plastics can all be recycled using the machine.

Recyling Technologies predicts the new site will manufacture 200 machines a year.

Adrian Griffiths, CEO of Recycling Technologies, said: “We have a goal to triple Europe’s current plastic recycling capability by 2027 through the provision of 10m tonnes of urgently needed new waste plastic recycling capacity.

“A special thanks is owed to Swindon Borough Council who had the vision to allow us to develop and build our pre-production machine at its recycling centre and help us achieve this milestone in tackling the global problem of waste plastic.”
