Zero Waste Scotland has said that delays to Project Beacon – which will see three companies form an ‘advanced plastics reprocessing facility’ in Perthshire – are down to an engineering review.
A demonstrator plant was due to be operational a year ago at the development site on the Binn Ecopark, nine miles south east of Perth. The project has financial support from Zero Waste Scotland of £1.7 million plus a further £1.7 million from the private sector. The three companies involved in the process are PI Polymer Recycling, Recycling Technologies and Impact Recycling.
Zero Waste Scotland told letsrecycle.com that the review is “necessary and not unusual”, and the companies behind the scheme have said the facility is on track for a 2020 launch.
