Imerys Performance Additives, Toulouse, France, has announced its acquisition of Regain Polymers Ltd., a plastic recycler headquartered in West Yorkshire, England. Imerys Performance Additives is a division of Imerys, the manufacturer of mineral-based specialty solutions.

Regain will become part of Imerys’ performance additives division. It will be combined with Imerys' existing waste polyolefin compatibilization business. Imerys says its laboratory, technical facilities and mineral portfolio will help widen the market offer, adding value to customers' businesses and allowing for future developments. 

This acquisition provides the basis for Imerys’ future investment in higher value applications for recycled polymers across the construction, packaging, automotive, horticulture and industrial sectors.
