Eurocell has increased the recycled PVC in its extrusions to 32% last year, up from 27% in 2021.

The increase means that in that year alone, the company’s closed-loop recycling plants in Selby, North Yorkshire, and Ilkeston, Derbyshire, saved the equivalent of three million window frames from going into landfill.

Head of recycling Sandra Gaspar said: “By integrating more recycled content into our products, we not only reduce our carbon footprint but also provide our customers with high-quality, sustainable building solutions.

“We are helping the industry reduce waste and lower its carbon footprint, which is what we want our forward strategy to help deliver as we look to make further inroads in our recycling operation.”

The latest increase also takes the company a step closer to its target of 40% recycled PVCuin its profiles by 2030.

The company’s recycling initiatives also extend beyond its own operations and it is working with third-party sites to optimise material recovery and reduce waste, aiming to increase the percentage of waste recycled to 88% by 2025 and to 93% by 2030.
