Last week ReNew ELP met with their constituency MP Jacob Young. Managing Director Richard Daley, Non-Executive Director Geoff Brighty and Marketing Manager Kim West scheduled a conference call after their face-to-face meeting had to be cancelled due to social distancing regulations. Jacob built his early career in the chemical industry at Sabic, and so with his knowledge of the sector, discussion focused on the regulatory barriers in the way of further development of chemical recycling, alongside inclusion in the Environment Bill.

Following the meeting, on Monday 15th June Jacob continued the conversation by raising ReNew ELP and Cat-HTR™ in the House of Commons. Present also was Rebecca Pow, Environment Minister, who also mentioned ReNew ELP as a technology to help tackle the problem of plastic waste.

ReNew ELP are developing the first commercial scale Cat-HTR™ technology at Wilton in Teesside, within Jacob’s constituency. The meeting and the discussion around ReNew ELP in the House of Commons are both great markers of progress in the drive to highlight chemical recycling at Government level, and in advance of the Third Reading of the Environment Bill.
