Following the fire that occurred in the shredding area at Renewcell 1 on March 22, 2023, work to assess and repair the damage has started. Initial assessment by Renewcell AB, Stockholm/Sweden, is that the clean-up and repair work is expected to be completed within approx. 2 weeks. Some limited production will be possible during this period.
The fire was extinguished shortly after the emergency services arrived at the site. All employees are safe, and nobody was injured. The fire was contained within the shredding area of the plant and caused damage to 1 of the 3 shredder units and 1 filter unit, both of which will be repaired.
The damage was limited thanks to the proper functioning of on-site fire prevention and mitigation measures. An assessment of the need for any additional fire safety measures is ongoing.
