Funding advice sessions for reprocessing SMEs – Swansea
Funding advice sessions for reprocessing SMEs
WRAP Cymru’s ARID (Accelerating Reprocessing Infrastructure Development) programme is designed to boost the recyclate reprocessing industry in Wales’ Convergence Region (West Wales, North West Wales and the South Wales Valleys). The programme is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Welsh Government.
Recycling and reprocessing businesses in Wales have the opportunity to learn more about applying for funding at two half-day sessions, in St Asaph, Denbighshire, on 20 March and Swansea on 21 March.
You’ll get the opportunity to find out more about the funding available and how to submit an application. There will also be information available about other WRAP Cymru advice and support for reprocessors, and you’ll have the chance to benefit from a one to one session with a WRAP Business Account Manager.

The sessions coincide with the opening of a new round of applications for the Large Scale Infrastructure and Reprocessing Fund, which provides capital funding to support the development of reprocessing infrastructure which will add value to recycled materials and provide high quality raw materials for Welsh manufacturers. Funding of up to 40 per cent of total capital expenditure will be considered; awards are usually between £250,000 and £500,000.
The deadline for applying is 15 June 2012. Full details of the eligibility criteria and information on how to develop an application, are included in the Grant Guidance Documents, available here:http://www.wrap.org.uk/wrap_corporate/funding/arid_large_scale_1.html
