The firm has acquired F&R Cawley, in a move that also enters Suez into the lithium-ion battery processing market.

The addition comes just two months after Suez also acquired DCW as it looks to boost its presence in the UK waste market.

“This second acquisition in Suez’s first year back in the UK recycling and recovery market highlights our ability to capitalise on opportunities in areas identified for strategic growth,” said Sabrina Soussan, chairman & CEO of Suez. “F&R Cawley complements Suez’s offering in innovative and resilient solutions such as battery recycling, where Suez is already a first player in France with the development of a battery recycling facility in Dunkirk.”
