Enval: Value from Waste

Enval is committed to tackling the increasing problems presented by materials that are currently unrecyclable or unrecycled with the aim of diverting them from landfill or incineration.

One of our main areas of expertise is the recycling of laminated packaging waste. Our technology extracts commercially usable aluminium, oil and gas from laminated packaging waste, such as baby-food and pet-food pouches, coffee bags, toothpaste and cosmetic tubes and the inner layers of drink cartons (e.g. Tetra Pak).

See the video below for a brief introduction to the Enval process and philosophy presented by Dr Carlos Ludlow, Enval's Managing Director.
