Via an integrated waste-to-energy facility that uses waste RDF as a feedstock to power the plant, PlasticBoxTM is the UK's first carbon neutral plastics upcycling process.
The PlasticBox™ is an end-to-end solution that recycles plastic-rich waste into food-grade accredited recycled plastics for use in food and drinks packaging.
Benefits of PlasticBox™
By extracting these vital resources from waste material we are able to replace a high volume of virgin plastics, accelerating our partners environmental and financial targets, without them needing to invest in critical infrastructure that could take years to install.
Technical aspects of solutions
The PlasticBox™ features all three essential recycling and repolymerisation phases in one plant, enabling The Emissions Capture Company to oversee the entire process from waste sorting to the production of high quality, accredited food grade plastics.
First time all three proven process stages have
been combined into one plant:
Front-end waste sorting; residual solid waste used as input to waste-to-energy plant; plastics waste enters next stage
Washing and flaking of different plastic types
Extrusion into food grade pellets
