SUEZ Environnement has delayed the official opening of a unique plant that will turn end-of-life plastics into diesel while it hunts for a commercial partner for the project.
A spokesman said this fall the plant in Avonmouth, Bristol, was due to open in the spring but was slated for an official opening.
“The plant is operational but not running fully commercially only yet,” he said. “The reason for the delayed official opening is because we’re looking for a commercial partner to take the fuel.
“We are speaking to a few parties and want an away-taker in place long term before we open it, so we understand that which we can do with the fuel made.”
