Plastics recycling centre. Mix of paper and ground plastic dust being produced at a recycling centre. This facility recycles plastic products from numerous sources. It breaks them down and supplies the resulting regrinds, compounds and baled plastics to customers engaged in a wide range of activities from compounding, to bag blowing and injection moulding. This dust will be compressed into high energy fuel pellets, which are used to heat industrial cement kilns. The ash leftover from the spent fuel is then blended into future concrete batches as filler. Photographed at Vanden Recycling, UK.
