Avonmouth Polymers Recruitment

The recycling and reprocessing plant will be a world-class facility which creates a recycling powerhouse in the South West, where both Viridor and Pennon have their headquarters. The plant is an early sign of Viridor’s continuing commitment to UK plastics conversion.  This development comes within months of the Government’s resources and waste strategy, and a year on from the UK Plastics Pact, of which Viridor is a founding member.

This co-location of a plastic reprocessing plant alongside an energy recovery facility is a real industry first, creating the opportunity to establish even greater sustainability and environmental efficiency.

The project will put 80,000 tonnes of recycled plastic from bottles, pots, tubs and trays (in PET, HDPE and PP flake and pellet form) back into the economy every year as a viable and sustainable solution to virgin plastic. The plant will be powered by diverting 320,000 tonnes of waste from landfill and generating 32MW of electricity – the equivalent energy used to power around 44,000 homes.

Recycled plastic uses 50% less electricity than virgin plastic, and sourcing power from non-recyclable waste takes energy efficiency one step further and gives this material a real purpose. The project also adds to its green credentials with the addition of a £2 million water treatment plant which has benefitted from the input and expertise of another Pennon company, South West Water.

In the coming months, we will be recruiting for approximately 80 roles to ensure the plant will be fully resourced in readiness to go online in Spring/Summer 2020.
