EvoInfra was engaged to build an appraisal model for a PET (plastics) recycling plant being developed by our client and market leader, Veolia. The completed plant would add capacity for approximately an additional 40,000 tons of PET to be recycled per year in the UK, with recycled rPET pellets and flakes being used for consumer goods packaging.
Different technical designs for the plant needed to be considered, involving different processes, so the EvoInfra team worked closely with Veolia’s engineering team to understand the designs and to identify the key modelling requirements for presenting the scenarios. The model was built using a modular approach to allow Veolia to review and feedback on the operational parts of the model while work continued in parallel on the accounting and capital structure modules. The model was delivered on time and to budget with a handover given to Veolia’s engineering and financial teams.
This was an exciting opportunity to leverage our existing expertise in the waste sector, and expand our knowledge of new technologies and markets.
