Recycling Technologies provides innovative solutions to help customers achieve financial gains through turning Residual Plastic Waste into a valuable resource.
Our flagship machine, the RT7000, converts Residual Plastic Waste – that is currently disposed of in landfill or incinerators – into a valuable low sulphur hydrocarbon we call Plaxx™.
Depending on site and feedstock commitments, Recycling Technologies can offer a full conversion service or just provide and install its equipment.
Using Residual Plastic Waste feedstock, the WarwickFBR produces Plaxx™, a waxy substance that can be used as energy or refined as feedstock for producing plastic.
In the European Union alone, more than 47 million tons of waste plastic is produced each year.
Of this, around 13% is recycled. A further 18% is burned to access its potential energy.
The remainder contributes to the ever expanding problem of landfill.
Additionally, there is carbon cost of transportation. Vast quantities of mixed plastics are "exported" for lack of localised facilities.

Does size matter?
When it comes to avoiding landfill, conventional wisdom has been to create large waste operations, economical by virtue of their size. These sort out valuable resources from the waste stream and then finally extract the energy from the residue. Full Article
Plastic in the circular economy
"A circular economy
is an alternative to a traditional linear economy
(make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life” WRAP. Full Article
Reducing the UK’s dependency on imported energy has been an aim for some time. I doubt though that even the architects of this policy realized how quickly political dispute on Europe’s borders would demonstrate how important this aim could become.
We are continuously on the lookout for talented engineers with a Petrochemical background that are passionate about making a difference. If you are interested please get in touch.
