Technology / Service Summary
Technology to reinforce plastic with Paper. With our unique mechanical process, the cellulose fibres found in paper are separated and dispersed into the plastic creating a fibre reinforced material.
Global consumption of resources is expected to double by 2050, causing a large effect on climate change and a loss of biodiversity. The plastic recycling rate is currently below 10%, and the majority of waste is either incinerated or landfilled. This technology will increase the recycling rate of the "difficult-to-recycle" mixed plastics, contributing towards improving the global environment.
- Utilising both paper and plastic waste to regenerate such waste into a higher value material
- Plastic waste is reinforced with the cellulose fibres found in paper and the strength of the original material can doubled
-The "difficult-to-recycle" multi-layered packaging (eg.potato chips packaging) as well as mixed paper (eg. beverage cartons) can be successfully upcycled utilizing our technology.
By deploying this technology, the waste materials which are currently being incinerated or landfilled, can be recycled into high strength materials. This will contribute towards reducing CO2 emissions caused by incineration, and also prevent untreated waste entering the ocean. The use of recycled materials can replace virgin fossil-fuel materials, contributing towards the reduction of CO2 emission.
