Recycling for Environmental Recovery
Creating a value-added chain from recycling plastic waste
The enterprise will create a value-added chain from recycling plastic waste. It will produce a range of secondary raw materials for the plastics industry such HPDE, LDPE, PP, PS and PET resin pellets, to supply domestically and to lucrative export markets. Additionally, a co-operative will be established to benefit waste collectors.
Existing plastic recycling efforts are small-scale and of poor quality. In contrast, this enterprise uses automated recycling processes. A waste collectors’ co-operative will ensure health and safety training, and higher returns for their work.
Recycling for Environmental Recovery is a business that manages the enterprise, as its principle investor.
