Technology news - 12 October

Revaluetech has developed process technology enabling mixed plastic waste to be used to manufacture a wide range of concrete and wood substitutes that compete directly on price with the products they replace.

The process can use rejected mixed plastic waste from MRFs, PRFs, MBT and AD operations, without prior sorting or washing and including carrier bags, all types and colours of pots, tubs and trays, sandwich boxes, egg cartons, hamburger boxes, shrink and stretch wrap films, metallised film packaging and multi-layer films used in cereal boxes.  This can include up to 10% non-plastics in the form of contaminants such as paper, labelling, aluminium foil lids, residual organic and inorganics and general dirt in the packaging.

Resultant products, in applications such as edging kerbs, decking and rail sleepers, are virtually unbreakable and offer longer and maintenance free service lives compared to the products they replace.

Revaluetech is offering the technology in the form of licensing agreements, together with project management. Investment required for a 7,500 tonne capacity plant is £4 million including working capital, which can be scaled up or down depending on need.
