Stockholm – Scandinavian Enviro Systems has progressed with its plans to build a major waste tire pyrolysis facility in Sweden and is now submitting new documents regarding ‘an alternative location’ for the construction of the plant.
In a 10 Sept statement, the company said it was preparing to submit additional consultation documents to local authorities in Västra Götaland, in Uddevalla region, for the plant which is claimed to be able to process half of the country’s annual end-of-life tires.
Earlier in the year, Enviro announced that it intended to submit a proposal for consultation documentation to Västra Götaland authorities for the construction of a waste tire recycling plant in the Lillesjö district of Uddevalla.
“When preparing the application, another alternative location for the recycling plant was identified,” said Enviro in its latest announcement.
As a result, the company is now supplementing the consultation to encompass the additional alternative location, it added.
Enviro expects to submit a formal application for construction permission in autumn this year.
As previously announced, a final decision on establishment of a plant will also depend on other factors, such as securing access to end-of-life tires and agreements covering deliveries of recovered materials.
