The upcycling of post-consumer single use plastic film, including multilayered and metallised film, waste is globally problematic. No simple global volume solution exists.
RWPA has developed a simple, economic, cost efficient solution to this problem waste and has also developed volume end use markets for our recyclate.
RWPA has already collected over 400,000 kg ( over 80 million pieces of packaging ) dirty post consumer single use plastic film waste from the streets and household waste streams and has successfully converted this into a useful recyclate that has been converted into valuable end use products.
This was made possible using RWPA’s unique processing technology which has now been extensively tried and tested.
Pressure is on the multinational producers to either develop new policy solutions or find a way to upcycle this lightweight, and difficult to collect waste stream.
RWPA Solutions has developed the solution.
Not all plastics are created equal. Until recently, there was no recycling or upcycling solution to Multi-layered Flexible Film plastic and packaging. RWPA have pioneered a proven process that enables us to convert Flexible Film Plastic into useful raw materials that form the basis of mutliple end-use application products and services.
One of the core aims of the ‘Virtuous Circle’ project, launched in South Africa in October 2016, has been to challenge assumptions.
Project partners DuPont and Rural Waste Poverty Alleviation Solutions (RWPA) have worked together on testing innovative methods of creating new products of genuine value from multilayer film packaging after it has served its original purpose.
‘While multi-layers play an essential role in preserving food, waste from this type of packaging has been growing steadily, so a solution had to be found,’
