THE WAY IT IS TODAY
8,300,000,000 tons of plastic waste accumulated worldwide
Since it’s invention in the 1950’s, plastic waste has been manufactured, accumulated and sent to landfills, with only a fracture of it being effectively recycled. The hazardous effects on land and ocean ecosystems, and in turn on human health present a huge problem and challenge for humanity to solve.
We at Plastic Back are creating value in waste and are working towards reducing landfills, ocean dumping and burn sites in an economic and environmentally-friendly manner.
80% LANDFILL / 14% INCINERATION / 6% RECYCLE
HOW WE'RE GOING TO FIX IT
Converting plastic waste back to it’s original, valuable form
Our innovative technology based on chemical oxidation is used to attack the plastic polymer and break it down to oils, waxes, and other valuable chemicals. The process is done in a closed conversion unit which requires minimal heating and a small physical space – compatible to big treatment facilities and medium/small decentralized waste producing operations.
Low temperature process
MInimal heating required – economic and environmental advantages to alternatives (600-1,200 C)
Small conversion units
Requiring small physical space (5x5m)
All plastic types
HDPE, LDPE, PP, PVC, PEG, mixed and contaminated
Industries & opportunities
Treatment, landfill and recycling operations
Global trends, regulation and legislations along with environmental awareness are pushing towards reducing landfills and increasing recycling. The EU pledged to reduce landfilling to 10% of its current capacity by 2030. Our technology can help you, the waste handlers, by treating specific waste streams and creating profit as an alternative to landfill.
Agriculture, factories, hospitals & medical devices
Waste manufacturers vary in size and are decentralized. Removal and treatment fees for plastic waste can reach $600/ton and are projected to increase in the coming years.
Today's consumers often demand eco-friendly products and processes from their suppliers and chosen brands. Our solution affords waste manufacturers the ability to treat their waste on site/close by, save expenses on removal and treatment fees and even create profits from their plastic waste.
