MAJOR INVESTMENTS IN PLASTIC RECYCLING
During the year, a project was initiated at the Stena Nordic Recycling Center in Halmstad that will enable the transformation of two waste plastic grades into recycled raw material. Interest in plastic recycling has grown significantly in recent years. This is a result of a strongly increased demand for recycled plastic in combination with a greater awareness about the negative environmental impact of plastic, stricter legal requirements and new technical solutions to recycle plastic.
LEADING RECYCLERS OF ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS
Stena Recycling has strengthened its position as one of Europe’s leading electronics recyclers throughout the year. In collaboration with producers and other operators in Europe, Stena Recycling has continued its efforts to ensure that electronic waste enters the correct waste streams.
