After many years in manufacturing polyolefins, working with Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP) and producing zero waste in production (thermo-mechanically recycling the raw material from our operations), we are now closing the loop by chemically recycling polyolefins from other waste streams reclaiming virgin material. The material achieved is of high commercial value, with similar physical specifications as the original material.
Our first step is the recycling of PP to its original specifications, achieving virgin-like PP from waste polymers with a high PP percentage. Trials to use the same process to reclaim virgin materials from other plastic waste streams is also envisaged and planned.
As partner in the EU funded ISOPREP project we are not only committed in reducing the amount of polyolefins sent to landfill but also in the downcycling of the material. Our intricate chemical recycling plant will provide virgin-like, value added, recycled polyolefins ; of improved quality and increased application range by compounding.
With this project, we are fully committed to providing a sustainable future for our children.
