RICHMOND, CALIF. (Nov. 14, 11:20 a.m. ET) — MBA Polymers Inc. has been named to the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200, a list of companies with “game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in green technology.”

The Richmond-based company recycles durable goods, separating and then selling a variety of grades of post-consumer plastics.

“It’s great to have been recognized in this way. We’re just about to celebrate our 20th birthday and we’ve now grown to become the world’s leading company recovering plastics from end-of-life durable goods, such as computers, electronics, business equipment, appliances and automobiles,” said MBA founder and president Mike Biddle, in a news release.

The company has three major plants, in the United Kingdom, Austria and China, with a total capacity of 175,000 tons annually.

MBA will be among the companies honored at AlwaysOn’s annual GoingGreen Silicon Valley event, set for Nov. 27-28 in San Francisco.
