Working in collaboration with industry and technology partners including UK universities, Recycling Technologies has successfully developed a chemical process, called the RT7000, to recycle what has long been considered ‘unrecyclable’ waste plastic films, pouches, trays, tubes and laminates which account for over 60% of plastic packaging arisings.  The RT7000 converts this mixed plastics waste into Plaxx®, a waxy low sulphur hydrocarbon that is distilled into a suite of materials from wax to naphtha, the feedstock for new plastics manufacture. Each unit can annum of waste plastic into approximately convert 7,000 tonnes per 5,250 tonnes of Plaxx®.
