VinyLoop closed PVC recycling project in Italy

July 11/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PVC recycling project VinyLoop in Ferrara, Italy, which was started in 2002, ceases operations, according to a brief statement from the company dated 28 June 2018, said the company.

As of now, there is no longer any production, the controlled processing of the plant has been initiated.

Founded by Solvay, VinyLoop was designed to make problematic waste from soft PVC, such as cables and films, materially recyclable by using solvents. There have been problems with REACH legislation in recent years. In soft PVC blends from long-ago production years, substantial amounts of phthalates are still contained, which are not economically separate even with the Vinyloop process.

The consequence for the company that is majority owned by Ineos subsidiary Inovyn (London / UK) is the current closure. Seventeen employees are to lose their jobs.
