Planning permission granted for Quantafuel’s first UK plastics recycling plant

Quantafuel’s plans to build a series of plastic recycling plants across the UK are moving on swiftly after planning permission was granted for its first operation in Sunderland today.

Sunderland City Council has given the go-ahead for a new Plastic-to-Liquid (PtL) plant to be built on land at the Port of Sunderland, creating over 100 permanent jobs and processing plastic waste that is largely not recycled in the UK.

The new plant will support 200 jobs during construction and will create over 100 new, full-time posts when it opens. It will be designed to process around 100,000 tonnes of low value plastic waste, such as soft food packaging and a variety of domestic and industrial plastics.
