Axion Consulting is administering Recofloor, a vinyl flooring take-back scheme based in the UK.

Founded by flooring manufacturers Polyflor and Altro, the Recofloor scheme aims to increase recycling of waste vinyl flooring in the UK and Ireland.

Developed from an earlier WRAP-funded (Waste and Resources Action Programme) trial, it now has seven flooring distributors actively collecting uplifted vinyl flooring and installation offcuts.

The two manufacturers recycle safety flooring offcuts and smooth vinyl offcuts from the installation process back into new flooring.

Uplifted or end-of-life material is used in the manufacture of traffic-calming products, such as traffic cone and road barrier bases.

Axion Recycling Ltd was formed in 2001 by directors Keith Freegard and Roger Morton to develop and operate innovative processing solutions for recycling waste materials. Axion Polymers and Axion Consulting are two companies that have grown out of this business.

Axion Polymers' state-of-the-art factory in Salford processes waste plastics from WEEE primary treatment plants into high grade polymers. Based in Bramhall, Stockport, Axion Consulting was created in response to increased demand from a wide range of clients within the recycling and process industries for the practical development of new processing and collection methods.

Axion Polymers supplies polystyrenes and polyolefins under two brand names: Axplas and Axpoly. Axplas covers a range of general-purpose recycled plastics for less demanding applications. The Axpoly brand refers to technically specified polymer grades that satisfy more demanding extrusion and injection-moulding requirements.

Customers can select exactly the correct grade of recyclate for their individual requirements. This also provides greater confidence in product quality and its ultimate performance in new recycled goods; whether that is for compost bins, pipes or plasma TV stands. Polymers are supplied with datasheets providing technical specifications and product safety information.

Axion Consulting’s disciplines cover all aspects of waste recycling: from practical trials and process development for new recycling processes to more general chemical process design development.
