And the partnership is mutually beneficial. EMR stepped up its operations in 2014, increasing the flow of material for recycling and enabling MBA to expand its UK production capacity by 40%. Together, the partners aim to double production in 2015. Meanwhile, EMR is achieving a ground-breaking recycling rate of 99% for end-of-life vehicles, exceeding new EU regulations.
Working with Müller-Guttenbrunn, MBA Polymers unveiled Austria’s largest e-waste shredder in 2013. More recently, the partners have collaborated to develop a technology to convert a by-product of the recycling process (that was previously incinerated) into a commercially viable raw material. MBA aims to generate value from every piece of waste that enters its plants and achieve zero waste to landfill.
By continuously investing in research and development and innovating with its partners, MBA is striving to recycle more types of plastic polymers and grow its business to keep up with the rising demand for sustainable materials.
