OnePlanetCapital leads £1.7m round into MDF Recovery

Investors in this round: OnePlanetCapital

The OnePlanetCapital Climate Change EIS fund has led a £1.7m round into the groundbreaking technology company MDF Recovery. MDF Recovery has a patented solution for the only effective industrialized process to recycle Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) at scale.

Over 75 million tonnes of MDF is being being manufactured globally every year. At end of life, MDF is either incinerated or sent to landfill, making it a huge environmental problem and emitter of C02. The MDF Recovery solution means that recycled MDF can now be provided back to industry at a lower cost than virgin MDF or used for other products in the construction industry.

This investment in MDF Recovery will provide funding to accelerate business growth and deliver the technology to a number of licensees in the UK and Europe in 2023 and 2024.

Matthew Jellicoe, director of OnePlanetCapital, said of the round; ‘MDF Recovery is one of the most exciting investments we have made in 2023 in that it is unique IP being applied to a massive global problem’.

Craig Bartlett, MD of MDF Recovery, commented ‘It was great to get a strategically aligned fund like OnePlanetCapital on board for this raise. The success of this round is great support and vindication of our business going forward.’
