A joint venture set up to build a plant to reprocess plastics from end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) has announced that it intends to develop the £17. 1 million facility at Worksop in Nottinghamshire. The facility is being developed by metals recycling firm European Metal Recycling (EMR) and American plastics recycling company MBA Polymers and will process 60,000 tonnes of post-shredder material a year. When the plant - which is set to be developed under the name MBA Polymers UK - was first announced in 2008 it was considered a "breakthrough" in helping the UK reach the End of Life Vehicle (ELV) Directive target of reusing and recycling 95% of ELVs by 2015. Concerns had been raised in the ELV sector that the UK and Europe would struggle to meet the 2015 target due to a shortage of post-shredder residue reprocessing capacity.
