Polish manufacturer Emplastik sp. z o.o. is planning to set up a new factory in Hrubieszów, in Poland's south-eastern part. The production facility is to make regranulate from recycled plastics, reports local daily Dziennik Wschodnik.
Under the plan, the factory is to be located on a land plot of close to 30,000 square metres, in the municipality's eastern part. The amount of the manufacturing project was not disclosed by the Polish firm.
Meanwhile, some of Hrubieszów's inhabitants have protested against plans by Egasta, a company which shares its chief executive with Emplastik, to set up a thermal waste processing facility in close proximity of the designed regranulate plant. Egasta decided to resign from its plans to set up its facility in Hrubieszów, but, according to the company's chief executive, the reasons behind its decision were not related to the protests.
“We resigned … due to our miscalculation of the investment's profitability which was caused by the current adverse market tendency of the continuing decrease in electricity prices and the low prices of waste collection,” said Paweł Bielarzewski, the chief executive of Egasta and Emplastik.
Set up in April 2016, Emplastik is headquartered in Olsztyn, in northern Poland.
Hrubieszów is located about 280 km from the country's capital Warsaw.
