New alliance drives Made-in-Canada recycling solutions

Press Release: Enviroplast & Canada Fibers

Two of Canada’s leading players in the recycling industry are teaming up to convert plastic film into high-quality LDPE

A strategic partnership between Enviroplast and Canada Fibers Ltd (CFL) to recover and recycle plastic film has been billed as ‘game-changing’ for the Canadian market, especially following the implementation of China’s National Sword policy in 2018 which banned imports of 24 types of waste material, including plastic film.

Anjou, Quebec-based Enviroplast is a specialist in the production of pure consistent low-density polyethylene (LDPE) recycled pellets, which are used as new raw material by plastic film makers. Toronto, Ontario-based CFL is an expert in material recovery and recycling services using advanced technology to uniformly recover high-quality materials. This exclusive agreement will therefore see CFL supply high-quality post-consumer plastic film to Enviroplast’s new state-of-the-art facility in Vaughan, Ontario, which is to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2019. CFL is starting to ramp-up supply to Enviroplast’s Anjou facility this month in preparation.

“Between the two Enviroplast facilities, this domestic market revolution allows for the recycling of up to 15,000 metric tonnes of plastic film a year following an investment of CA$25,000,000,” reported Mathieu Séguin, CEO of Enviroplast. “With CFL being able to provide us a clean and pure stream of plastic film, we are able to produce a high-quality LDPE pellet to meet growing demand for pure, sustainable, recycled raw material.”

“CFL and Enviroplast’s significant investments in leading-edge recovery and recycling technology will drive expansion of the domestic market for the recycling of plastic film,” added Mark Badger, executive vice president of CFL. “CFL’s continuous investment in innovative sorting technologies enables recovery of superior quality, clean streams of plastic film that meet the high standards of Enviroplast’s LDPE pellet production requirements.”

The formation of the Enviroplast and CFL strategic partnership demonstrates a successful collaboration between two big organizations in the recycling industry whose ongoing investments in technologies have helped drive made-in-Canada recycling solutions in a climate of international challenges.
