Paprec plans mixed-plastic waste sorting facility and R-PP extrusion line

December 07/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- French waste management and recycling major Paprec is planning to build a new mixed-plastic waste sorting facility in Chalon-Sur-Saone, said the company.

Construction will start in the next few months for completion at the end of 2021. The facility will sort mixed-coloured waste by material and colour and is expected to have a capacity of approximately 30,000 tonnes/year.

Paprec is also adding a new 10,000 tonne/year recycled polypropylene (R-PP) extrusion line at its facility in the Lyon region, which will come onstream in September.

As MRC informed earlier, 380,000-metric tons/year steam cracker at Porvoo, Finland, operated by Borealis, has reached 100% capacity utilisation after the company lifted force majeure. The company declared force majeure, following a technical failure on 11 November. The cracker was shut down to allow necessary repair works, according to Borealis. The company began restart operations on 23 November, 2020, and resumed normal operations in early December.

As per MRC's ScanPlast report, Russian plants' total PP production dropped to 152,000 tonnes in October from 158,200 tonnes a month earlier ZapSibNeftekhim and Poliom's production capacitites were shut for maintenance. Russia"s overall PP production reached 1,529,000 tonnes in January-October 2020, compared to 1,170,300 tonnes a year earlier. Six out of eight producers raised their capacity utilisation, with a new producer - ZapSibNeftekhim - accounting for the main increase in the output.
