Plans from the plastics recycling firm to increase its footprint at Junction Eco-Park in Salford by 100,000 sq ft are earmarked for approval by the city council.
Roydon Group’s proposals comprise redeveloping a vacant 6.6-acre site next to its existing recycling centre off Rake Lane to create a facility for converting waste plastics into recycled resins for reuse in the packaging industry.
If approved, the scheme would add to the firm’s existing 130,000 sq ft footprint at the industrial park.
The project would feature 90,000 sq ft of industrial space and 10,000 sq ft of offices. A 97-space car park also features under the proposals.
Roydon anticipates that the new factory would process 45,000 tonnes of waste per year once operational.
Manchester-based UMC Architects designed the expansion and WSP is the planning consultant.
