ReNew ELP, Mura Technology’s first commercial scale Cat-HTR™ partner, have opened their UK office at the Wilton Centre, a science and business park in Redcar, Teesside.
With plans to run up to 80,000 tonnes of waste plastic annually, the securing of office space and headquarters brings together a team of highly experienced engineers, scientists and business development experts to move the project forward into commercial processing.
Initially, ReNew ELP will recycle 20,000 tonnes of end-of-life plastic per annum, but have planning consent for a further three lines, with a potential total capacity of 80,000 tonnes annually.
The patented Cat-HTR™ (Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor) process uses supercritical water (at high pressure and high temperature) to recycle a wide range of feedstocks – turning end-of-life plastics back into stable synthetic oils and valuable chemicals.
Richard Daley, Managing Director, ReNew ELP, said:
As the centre of the UK’s chemicals industry, Teesside is the ideal location for our first plant and head office. The many benefits of being part of a process industry cluster convinced us to choose the Wilton Centre, as the region boasts a skilled workforce, vital infrastructure and utilities, and a large number of potential feedstock suppliers and customers for our products.”
The technology was developed by Australian company Licella over a ten year period, including intensive testing at a pilot site in New South Wales.
