Enviro Intends to Realize Tire Recycling Facility in Uddevalla

Sweden-based company Scandinavian Enviro Systems has been granted an environmental permit for the planned recycling plant in Uddevalla (province Västra Götalands Län).

As the company previously has announced, the application pertained to the establishment of a recycling plant on an industrial site in the Lillesjö district of Uddevalla Municipality. The facility would have the capacity to process up to 60,000 tons per year, which would suffice for the recycling of more than 60 percent of Sweden’s total annual volume of end-of-life tires. The environmental permit application for the facility was filed in mid-November of last year.

“Our application has been handled swiftly, which is proof that we have established a solid process for preparing supporting documentation for environmental permit applications. Our ability to do this is essential for our continued expansion, since efficient permit processes are a critical success factor,” Thomas Sörensson, CEO of Enviro, was cited.

A final decision on establishing the new plant depended on several factors, such as securing access to end-of-life tires and agreements covering deliveries of recovered materials.
