Menai Science Park
MDF Recovery has been accepted as a virtual tenant for the state of the art Science Park being developed on the Isle of Anglesey. This serves to enhance the existing relationship that MDFR has established with Bangor University and is a pre-cursor to a new headquarters location for our growing business. M-SParc will offer direct access to Government support, flexible operating space and an environment suited to the needs of a sustainable technology start up.
The BioComposites Centre, Bangor University
The BioComposites Centre (BC) is recognised as a European Centre of Excellence in the forest products sector. It has a track record in assisting companies develop new technologies and products for over 25 years. The Centre has a dedicated pilot plant facility for the production of wood based panel products that is unique to the UK. The facilities include a pressurised 12” refiner and a 120m flash tube drier and cyclone systems for the refining and drying of biomass materials. Additional facilities at BC include mechanical sifting, wet fractionation and fibre analysis techniques.
BC and MDFR have been collaborating for over six years and are currently working together within a supply chain project, part funded by the UK Government’s principle R&D programme called Innovate UK. The project seeks to introduce closed loop recycling opportunities for medium density fibreboard, all of which is currently incinerated or sent to landfill at the end of its useful life.
