Enval appoints Jeremy Blake to accelerate further growth.
Enval has appointed Jeremy Blake as part of its senior management team, in charge of operations and accelerating the business’ strong growth.
Enval uses a unique proprietary pyrolysis technology for treating low-density packaging waste. Such as plastic aluminium laminates, a sheet of aluminium sandwiched between two sheets of plastic, the type of packaging used for drink pouches. This technology can recover the plastic and the aluminium. By applying cutting-edge innovation to packaging recycling, Enval is paving the way for environmentally responsible packaging solutions. The governments plastic packaging tax which applies to plastic packaging produced in, or imported into the UK that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic has inspired a number of companies to recycle more plastics.
Jez, as he is widely known in our industry, joins Enval to lead the company’s operations department, bringing with him over 10 years’ experience in the circular economy sector. Prior to joining Enval, he worked at Viridor, where he was the Head of Recycling Assets specialising in polymers. Jez has a demonstrated history of working at the intersection of renewables and environmental technologies, plus has a strong dedication towards implementing sustainable solutions for pressing issues such as plastic waste. These skills make him a crucial addition to the Enval team, at a time when an increasing number of FMCGs, plastic producers, packaging companies and waste handlers are looking for game-changing solutions to tackle plastic waste issues.
Whilst welcoming Jez to Enval, Dr. Carlos Ludlow-Palafox, our CEO said: “Treating plastic better enables the recycling of valuable resources and paves the way for environmentally responsible packaging solutions. With Jez’s extensive track record in the industry, we can further empower FMCGs to strengthen profitable and sustainable brands while complying with new regulations and open up new revenue streams for our partners in the supply chain: plastic producers, packaging companies and waste handlers.”
Talking about his new appointment Jez said: “I am very excited to join Enval. The company is changing the perception of plastic and unlocking a profitable circular economy. I’m confident our solution is a game-changer for FMCGs and waste handlers. Together, we’ll contribute to a sustainable and circular future.
“I see many opportunities in food packaging innovations, as FMCGs continue to opt for solutions that prevent food waste and improve shelf life, while guaranteeing an effective and correct waste treatment of packaging. It is essential that FMCGs can continue to choose the best packaging to extend shelf life, so Enval has an important role to play in making this type of packaging circular.”
