ecoBirdy - A one-stop recycling service to reach full circularity.

ecoBirdy is a new business model that aims to convert companies to the circular economy. Its unique production process named ecothylene®, transforms post-consumer plastic waste into high-grade raw material.

With its self‐developed technology, ecoBirdy is able to recycle the plastic which currently has been discarded from the recycle stream. The patented technology is a combination of integrated colour separation and a unique binding formula for polymers. This enables upcycled products at low energy, 100% recycled, no pigments needed and 100% recyclable. The outcome is high‐grade material recovery that can replace virgin plastic.
