A highly sustainable solution to the rapidly growing problem of plastic waste.
Transforming a Liability into a Resource
Recycling Technologies’ chemical process is designed to integrate traditional mechanical recycling activities in order to tackle the hard-to-recycle plastic waste. The combination of mechanical and feedstock recycling systems can increase current recycling rates up to 90%.
Closing the Loop on Plastic
Plastic is a truly versatile and valuable material; its production and use is thus expected to keep growing exponentially. However, the incredibly high proportion of plastic waste that escapes official collection streams poses a serious challenge to dealing with resultant pollution.
Recycling Technologies has engineered a modular and scalable machine – the RT7000 – to chemically convert plastic waste, which currently cannot be recycled, into Plaxx® – a valuable hydrocarbon product. The machine is sized to be installed at existing waste sites and recycling centres, diverting residual plastic waste from ending up landfilled, incinerated or exported overseas.
The RT7000 is broken down into modules, each module is built into a standard 20ft ISO shipping frame for ease of, mass-production in individual lines, transportation worldwide either by land or sea, and allowing for quick on-site installation. Recycling Technologies is engineering the RT7000 and developing the required technologies at its Facility in Swindon, UK.
The company intends to integrate into current recycling infrastructure by scaling out. Our mission is to build 1300 RT7000 machines in the next decade, to underpin our mission of producing 7 million tonnes of Plaxx® by 2027. In doing so, we will add 10 million tonnes of recycling capacity.
