OUR MISSION IS
A CLEAN WORLD WITHOUT PLASTIC WASTE
We believe that we can make a difference!
By implementing technological innovation in plastic recycling industry
By making plastics a circular commodity
By contributing to nature conservation projects
FIRST FACILITY FOR RECYCLING 6.000 TONS OF USED LDPE FILMS WILL BE BUILD BY 2021.
Using eco-friendly and efficient recycling process Blue Plastics is producing prime quality LDPE granulate out of most dirty plastic waste steams.
Granulate is odourless and 99.5% close to virgin LDPE, is suitable for production of agricultural and other non-food films.
PLASTIC WASTE PROBLEM
Every year in Europe there have been generated 27 million tons of plastic waste.
11.3 million tons of it are burned, 7.4 million tons are going to a landfill and 8.7 million tons are recycled.
Until recent, more than one third of collected plastics was shipped for recycling to Asian countries, including China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand.
Since these countries have banned imports of foreign plastic garbage, it is piling up in storage of collecting, recycling and incinerating facilities.
ALL PLASTIC WASTE:
27 million tons in Europe
USED AGRICULTURAL PLASTICS:
1.2 million tons in Europe
AGRICULTURAL PLASTIC WASTE
European agricultural industry is generating yearly 545.000 tons of used agricultural films, where 70% is dumped and burned and only 30% is collected for recycling.
Recycling of agricultural films presents particular challenges due degradation of the material, and due to contamination with fertilisers and pesticides. Traditional water washing does not clean all the residues. As a result, recycled plastic from agricultural industry has a strong odour and poor physical properties, limiting its usage in high-quality films.
Blue Plastics cleans plastics from these contaminants much better than a conventional water washing process, improving the quality of end product.
OPENING NEW HORIZONS IN PLASTIC RECYCLING
Blue Plastics is initially focused on processing polyethylene film waste, mainly originating from European agricultural industry. Due to heavy contamination, 70% of these plastics are currently being burned and dumped.
Using environmentally friendly, efficient and patented recycling process Blue Plastics can recycle these plastics back to prime quality granulate.
The first facility for recycling 6.000 tons of used LDPE films will be operational in the end of 2021.
Blue Plastics is focused on three domains:
Technological Innovation – continuous R&D for better product quality, higher process efficiency and lower operational costs.
Customer Orientation – high quality end product will answer customer`s performance needs.
Environmental Protection – we strive to bring emissions and pollution from operations to zero, minimising impact on the environment.
