We give new life to non-recycled thermoplastics filamentary
Recycling round bales nets and twine from agriculture, with a dry & eco-friendly process.
Our technological innovation is a new dry recycling process that starts from cleaning the plastic up to regenerating it as a recycled raw material (RRM). Our first resource is the round ball net from agriculture, our aim will be to sell our RRM to manufactures in order to recreate the net. This project has been developed on a circular economy scheme. Our recycling process works without the use of water or chemicals fluids, which reduce substantially our environmental impacts, this innovation has been patented. The process is fully mechanical with a lower energy impact ( -30 % of electricity) compare to the classic process. Today, these nets are sadly landfill or burn, according to the French ministry of Agriculture only 40% of the waste is collected to be landfill. The last 60% is burned in the agricultural field, due to the lack of an optimal solution. Our innovation will save 14 000T of C02 per year at minimum and reduce 435 000k/year CTU (comparable toxic units) in groundwater pollution (according to the Life Circle Analysis made by MU coop Agency in 2015). Every year, more than 1 billion nets are used to store hay and the consumption is increasing by 10% every year worldwide.
