MBA Polymers Inc. (MBA) and European Metal Recycling Limited (EMR) have
announced that they will locate their joint venture plastics recycling facility
in Worksop, United Kingdom.

The joint venture, known as MBA Polymers U.K., will be located in a building
that was formerly used for glass production. In a news release, MBA says the
building “is well accommodated to house the planned 80,000 tons-per-year plastic
processing facility, and the central location is ideal for servicing sustainable
plastics customers throughout the U.K. and greater Europe.”

MBA Polymers UK will process shredder residue that has already been upgraded by
EMR at its U.K. operations. MBA has developed processes to recover, separate and
purify what it calls high-value plastics from the shredder residue stream. MBA,
in its news release, says, “The result is high quality plastic that can be
re-used in automotive and other durable goods applications.”

Adds Michael Biddle, MBA’s founder and president, “The MBA Polymers UK facility
is an exciting development as it expands our company’s global ability to deliver
high-quality resins from recycled plastic with a very small carbon footprint.”

David Ireland, EMR’s director of technical services, remarks, “The site
selection has taken longer than expected as it was important to find the right
location to maximize the benefits of lower logistical costs with suitable
markets for the finished goods. We can now move quickly to complete this project
and start recovering plastic from shredder waste in early 2010. This is an
important development in EMR’s goal of eliminating waste from our shredder

EMR,, is one of the largest metal recyclers in the world. Based

patented processes to create high-performance plastic resin from plastic waste
recovered from end-of-life durable goods. The company currently operates plants
in the United States, China and Austria.
