SUMMARY OF BUSINESS ACTIVITIES
Global leaders in plastic recycling. Innovative alternatives to virgin feed. Consistent high quality you can rely on. From today's Automotive Shredder Residue & Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment to tomorrow's polymer products & components. Producing polymer grades - ABS, PP, FPP, PS & HDPE.
Because we’re part of the EMR Group, who process around 10m tonnes of materials each year, MBA we can provide a consistent, high volume supply of polymer that allows you to meet the most demanding of production volumes and delivery schedules.
Our advanced plastic recycling gives you the feed you need, when you need it, in the volumes you need.
Supplying into sectors including:
From today's Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), to tomorrow's polymer products and components, our state-of-the-art recycling process separates, cleans and compounds plastic polymer grades including:
• ABS: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
• PC-ABS (Polycarbonate / Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Blend)
• PP: Polypropylene
• PP Bumper – Polypropylene Bumper
• FPP: Filled Polypropylene (Talc / Glass)
• HIPS: High Impact Polystyrene
• HDPE: High Density Polyethylene
• Bespoke Services
• Closed Loop Solutions
Specialists in processing complex waste streams from both post consumer feedstock, ASR and WEEE and post industrial plastics from the automotive industry, We provide you with a closed-loop solution for all of your plastic requirements, offering great value and sustainability.
OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION
Armed with the determination to change the world, Dr. Biddle began work in his garage, seeking a commercially viable way to take plastic from complex waste streams and refine it into high value polymers. An innovative alternative to virgin polymers for use in a range of applications.
By 1992, Dr. Biddle had proven the viability of his process. In 1997, our first small-scale pilot production facility opened in Richmond, California.
Production facilities were first established in Austria and China, these plants focused on manufacturing three polymer grades from Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).
In 2010, our largest production facility was opened in Worksop, UK to allow us to collaborate with one of the world’s largest metal recyclers – EMR. Applying the knowledge gained and enhanced technology, MBA UK strengthen their product offering by being able to process even more complex post consumer waste streams such as Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR).
EMR would process end-of-life vehicles and retrieve steel and non-ferrous metals. MBA would retrieve plastic residues from their shredding processes and turn it into recycled polymer products.
By securing a consistent, high volume supply of plastic feedstock, MBA could now service larger and larger clients, reducing reliance of emissions-intensive virgin plastics across multiple industries.
In 2019, MBA UK expanded the business further, in the acquisition of a post industrial arm focused on processing post industrial plastics from the automotive industry including complex multi-layered parts and converting them back into high quality closed loop resins. Enabling MBA UK to provide a total plastic waste management solution to the automotive and injection moulding sector.
"Together We Can Accomplish Anything"
In less than thirty years, our vision and commitment has taken us from a small California garage to a World Leading Recycling operation.
But our task isn’t complete. Millions of tonnes of plastic still goes unrecycled, leading to countless tonnes of CO2 emissions and an insatiable demand for petrochemicals.
Plastics are too valuable to burn, or to bury. And MBA Polymers will work to ensure that every year, more and more of this valuable material is put to good use, supplying industries across the world.
