The Process

Converting Waste into Value.

Collection, Sorting, Shredding, Cleaning, Feedstock

1.Collection
Our process begins at our collection centres, where we buy raw plastic waste from our network of community-based organizations, garbage handling companies, NGOs and from communities living near dump sites or landfills

2.Sorting
This involves separating the plastics based on the type. Our facilities have the capacity to efficiently sort through the 7 major categories of plastics.

3.Shredding
Once the waste material is sorted, it is then put in our shredders where it is shred to small manageable granules based on the desired size.

4.Cleaning
Depending on the intended market and application, our technicians deploy cold or hot washing of the shredded granules. The objective of cleaning at this stage is to eliminate all types of contaminants.

5.Feedstock
Gathering from years of experience and quality assurance we produce high quality raw feedstock designed to be suitable for all plastic moulding processes and to meet various market needs.

To close the loop, our journey begins at our collection centers, where we receive all types of plastics from homes and businesses with the help of our network of community-based organizations living in informal settlements. From there the plastics are transported to our recycling plants where they are sorted according to the various types of plastics. Once sorting is completed, our shredding machines make granules from the waste, after which these waste granules are put through either hot or cold washing to remove contaminants. The next step involves formulating, blending and compounding the granulates into processed plastics pellets. Each batch is formulated based on the client’s needs while the pellets become the feedstock for manufacturing replacing virgin plastics in making new products and re introducing them to the end consumer for use.
