Vanden Recycling takes quality to the next level at Plastics Recycling Show Europe 2018

Stand F5, 24 - 25 April 2018, Amsterdam

Quality is key to the successful recovery and use of recyclable plastic. Vanden Recycling UK, a subsidiary of Vanden Global, will demonstrate how it takes quality to the next level at PRSE 2018.

Operating worldwide for more than a decade, Vanden Recycling has a reputation for the supply of high quality recyclable plastics. This provides a consistent, reliable feedstock for manufacturers seeking to increase the quantity of recycled materials within both existing and new products and packaging.

Vanden adheres to a strict set of procedures to ensure it maintains a consistent supply of high quality recyclable plastics, including LDPE, LLDPE, PE/PP Rigid, WEEE, PVC, PS and EPS. These procedures include:

  • Inspections before purchase, including sample sharing and photographic evidence for complete transparency
  • Pre-purchase sampling
  • In-house loading inspections to ensure quality and volumes match expectations
  • Compliance with all major standards in Europe and Asia including ISO 9001
  • Dedicated account manager oversees material from start to finish


In addition, Vanden has opened a dedicated UK production plant in Peterborough which supplies high quality PP and PET regrind. This processes more than 30MT tonnes of recovered post-industrial and post-production PP and PET a year. The Peterborough plant follows a strict set of procedures to ensure a high, consistent quality product is delivered. This includes:

  • Pre-sorting of all recovered materials before entering production process
  • All material goes through a ZigZag Airflow System to remove lightweight debris
  • All lines have metal detection indicators
  • Dedicated PET and PP/HDPE production lines to avoid cross contamination
  • Full clean down of PP/HDPE line after each material is processed
  • Clear testing and inspection process
