Business Development UK, IQR Systems AB
Paul began his career working in his family business manufacturing animal feeds and machinery, before moving into construction and then finally into the recycling sector.
He now has over 25 years’ experience working in the recycling industry and has built up a large network of contacts. He uses his expertise to provide value-added solutions from the handling and processing, to the recovery and recycling of many waste materials, reducing the impact financially and environmentally of sending these materials to landfill.
Paul currently looks after the Business Development for IQR Solutions AB in the UK, and has helped increase its business by designing, building and installing turnkey processing lines for many waste streams including wood, enabling the material to be then used as an alternative fuel or made into other products. Over 20 waste processing facilities use the IQR FlaxHammer machines for processing wood, waste and PVC.
Alongside this, Paul is managing director of Recycling, Plant & Machinery Ltd (RPM Ltd), a company which specialises in the sales and marketing of new and used recycling equipment. In the last five years his role has also grown into the decommissioning of processing facilities, involving relocating, re-designing and re-installing them. Literally recycling the recycling facility!
In 2018, Paul co-founded GAP Alternative Fuels, which helps clients find homes for recyclable materials including waste wood, biomass, residual waste (SRF/RDF) and UPVC. He is also Chair of the UK Security Shredding Association.
Paul has been a member of the WRA board since 2014.
