A highly sustainable solution to the rapidly growing problem of plastic waste.

Today, 90 percent of the plastic used in the world is either buried, burned, or discarded. Around 32 percent of plastic packaging leaks into the environment, leading to the alarming environmental phenomenon known as "Plastic Oceans". Recycling Technologies is on a mission to develop the global plastic recycling capacity, including the plastics currently thought of as "unrecyclable". Their modular machine, the RT7000, converts virtually all plastics into Plaxx, a valuable hydrocarbon from which more virgin-quality plastic can be produced. The RT7000 offers a commercially attractive way to boost plastic recycling rates and meet sustainability commitments. This machine recycles 7,000 tons of plastic per year, and it is to be mass produced and transported to waste centers around the world. Plans are also being developed to locate these machines alongside the rivers in developing countries which discharge the majority of plastic into the oceans. Operators of these riverside machines will be able to pay people to bring their plastic for recycling, cutting the volume of plastic flowing into the oceans and aiding in the development of these communities.
