Windows firm develops uPVC recycling
Monday, 21 January 2008
Wrekin Windows has launched its new recycled uPVC composite material to close the loop on the recycling process.
Manufactured from post-consumer uPVC windows, the material is the only approved product of its kind in the government-backed WRAP Construction Product Guide.
The company claims that by bringing back old PVC-U frames into use, Wrekin is able to intercept thousands of tonnes of material that might otherwise have gone to landfill, helping registered social landlords (RSLs) to hit strict â€œgreenâ€ government targets.
Material is supplied by Wrekinâ€™s sister company uPVC recycling firm Dekura. The company can recycle factory off-cuts and first-generation uPVC products that have reached the end of their natural lifecycle.
