Enviroplast and Canada Fibers Ltd. (CFL) announced they are entering into an exclusive supply agreement to recover and recycle plastic film. The strategic partnership between the two companies comes as more Canadian-based plastic recycling solutions has increased following the implementation of China’s National Sword policy in 2018.
Anjou, Quebec, Canada-based Enviroplast produces pure consistent low-density polyethylene (LDPE) recycled pellets, which are used as new raw material by plastic film makers. Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based CFL provides material recovery and recycling services using advanced technology to uniformly recover high-quality materials. This agreement will see CFL supply high-quality post-consumer plastic film to Enviroplast’s new facility in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, which will be commissioned in Q3 2019. CFL is starting to ramp up supply to Enviroplast’s Anjou facility this month in preparation.
“Between the two Enviroplast facilities, this domestic market revolution allows for the recycling of up to 15,000 metric tonnes annually of plastic film a year following an investment of $25,000,000,” said Mathieu Séguin, CEO of Enviroplast, in a statement. “With CFL being able to provide us a clean and pure stream of plastic film, we are able to produce a high-quality LDPE pellet to meet growing demand for pure, sustainable, recycled raw material."
“CFL and Enviroplast’s significant investments in leading-edge recovery and recycling technology will drive expansion of the domestic market for the recycling of plastic film,” said Mark Badger, executive vice president of CFL, in a statement. “CFL’s continuous investment in innovative sorting technologies enables recovery of superior quality, clean streams of plastic film that meet the high standards of Enviroplast’s LDPE pellet production requirements.”
