Biffa has been given the green light to develop a 37,000 tonnes-per-annum capacity PET plastic bottle reprocessing facility in Seaham, County Durham.

The company was awarded planning consent for the development by Durham council today (6 February), and is expecting to begin construction on the plant in summer 2019. Commissioning may begin in December 2019, the company says, if the plant is delivered on schedule.
