Research, development and more research
Ecoplasteam was founded for activities in research, development and the use of innovative solutions in order to guarantee strategies for the conversion of waste. Using patented processes, it treats polylaminates which would otherwise end up as waste and gives them a new life, creating recyclable materials. One of the main problems to deal with regarding waste is how it is separated and how difficult it is to break down composite materials.
High engineering skills, coupled with an intrinsic value deriving from the idea of a sustainable enterprise, led to success in developing a production system that makes it possible to use waste from composite materials to create a new material: EcoAllene®.
We do circular economy
Ecoplasteam has its roots within the processes of the circular economy, and adheres to its philosophy of values and advantages. The system has the advantage that it puts on the market a new material that leads to a different treatment system: from the system of re-using polylaminates, it is shifted to a second cycle of re-use of plastic:
- It turns a polylaminate (PO-AL) into a transformable and reusable material
- It creates a material which is completely workable with technical characteristics comparable to virgin material
- It has characteristics which make it 100% recyclable, and bring it into the cycle of transformation and re-use of plastic.
- It creates a solution to the long-standing problems of separation of polylaminates, turning them to all intents and purposes into a second raw material which is renewable, recyclable and which can return to the market an infinite number of times.
We use the term Open Loop because the treatment system introduces the possibility to re-use the material, going from primary processes to secondary processes:
thus it is a system of re-use of waste in which the product is used in a different system to that which created the waste in the first place.
