Lamor and Remeo sign an agreement on the supply of plastic waste for feedstock to the Lamor Recycling facility in Kilpilahti, Porvoo, Finland

Lamor Recycling has signed an agreement with a Finnish waste management company Remeo on the supply of sorted plastic waste as feedstock to the Lamor Recycling’s chemical recycling facility in Kilpilahti, Finland. Remeo will provide the full amount and quality of plastic waste that the facility requires once it is completed later this year. With an initial annual processing capacity of 10,000 metric tons, it will be the first industrial-size facility for chemical recycling of plastic in Finland, and a proof-of-concept plant for Lamor’s plans to have a 100,000 metric ton portfolio in chemical plastic recycling.

“We are together creating a new, scalable recycling method for plastics. This cooperation is unique in industry, and it will become reality faster than any of the other projects that are in design phase”, says Remeo’s CEO Johan Mild. “For us, this initial 10,000 metric ton agreement marks the starting point for a significant cooperation that has a lot of potential.”

The facility is being constructed and will be operated by Lamor Recycling Oy, a project company owned by Lamor and its partner Resiclo Oy.

“It is crucial for us to have access to sorted plastic waste with the right polyolefin content, which until now is mainly diverted for incineration. We are very happy about this agreement that brings us a step further in sustainable development and circular economy of plastic”, says Lamor’s CEO Johan Grön, who previously headed the project as Lamor’s COO. “Remeo has an extremely modern and efficient sorting facility in 20 kilometers distance from Kilpilahti, and we are looking forward to good cooperation and potentially even higher volumes in the future.”

Remeo is a Finnish environmental management company and the leading sorter of plastics focusing on waste recovery. Their materials sorting facility in Vantaa is unique in Europe because it uses advanced technology and integrates two different processing lines for waste fractions: both commercial & industrial waste (C&I) and construction & demolition waste (C&D).

EU commission has recently sent a warning to Finland that the country is unlikely to achieve the 55% target set to the recycling of municipal waste. In addition, the EU is preparing legislation that prohibits the use of recycled plastic imported from outside the EU in food packaging due to environmental concerns. Food packaging requiring high hygiene will be one possible way to use Lamor Recycling’s production.

“This project, as well as our planned portfolio, are certainly strong contribution to solving the huge global plastic waste problem, starting from Finland”, concludes Grön.
