Berry changes name of Plasgran plastics business

The Plasgran plastics recycling operation has changed its name to Berry Circular Polymers.

The business, based in Wimblington, Cambridgeshire, is soon to be joined by a recycling facility at Leamington Spa.

Berry said the new name would support its move towards a circular and net zero economy, for which the company has set a target of 30% circular plastic use across its fast-moving consumer goods packaging by 2030.

Plasgran is a recycler of rigid plastics, which compounds and regrinds these creating custom formulations, such as color matching or improved impact strength.

The Leamington Spa facility will use Berry’s CleanStream technology, which it said was the world’s first closed-loop system to mechanically process domestically recovered household waste polypropylene back into food-grade packaging.

Managing director Jeremy Blake said: “The launch of Berry Circular Polymers brings together our advanced rigid plastics recycling facilities.

“Our technical expertise and experience will enable us to deliver recycled material of high quality and consistency to support our customers’ drive for sustainable solutions.”
