Recycling Technologies

Recycling Technologies converts Mixed Plastic Waste (MPW) into a hydrocarbon currently in the form of a slack wax (PlaxxTM). The initial technology (WarwickFBRTM) was developed at the University of Warwick and the Company was spun out in 2011. In early 2013, the R&D and production facilities in Swindon were opened to develop and manufacture the modularised recycling systems. The initial laboratory scale (1 kg/hr) unit has been successfully trialling MPW feedstocks for 18 months.  The first commercial scale unit (RT700 -100 kg/hr) is expected to be commissioned in June 2015 prior to transfer to Swindon Borough Council for extensive operational trials. The main commercial offering will be an RT7000 processing up to 7,000 tonnes of mixed plastic waste per year into 5200 tonnes of Plaxx (85% energy, 75% mass conversion).
