Arqlite has developed a proprietary technology capable of processing the plastics that today are considered non-recyclables (mixed, degraded, laminated, etc.) at a competitive price to landfill tipping fees. Arqlite offers this solution to big plastic waste generators, both private and public. Its first product is an eco-friendly and highly efficient material called Arqlite Smart Gravel. Taking the best of plastic polymers, this aggregate is three times lighter and ten times better insulator than mineral gravel. Besides scoring points for LEED certifications for being made 100% from recycled materials deviated from the environment.
