UK-based Recycling Technologies Ltd is on a mission to accelerate the evolution of plastic into a more sustainable material. Currently, 88% of the plastic used in the world is either buried, burned or leaked into the environment. This means that the world recycles only 12% of the million tonnes of plastic waste produced each year. Recycling Technologies, a research, engineering, and manufacturing company, has developed innovative technologies to turn hard-to-recycle plastic waste including polystyrene and flexible packaging into feedstocks for new plastic production. Our first commercial product, the RT7000, is modular and small-scale, designed to fit easily onto existing waste treatment and recycling sites, providing a scalable solution to recycle waste plastic anywhere in the world. For further information, please visit www.recyclingtechnologies.co.uk.

Notable Achievements

  • We have been chosen by Ineos Styrolution and Trinseo as their main technology provider to recycle polystyrene back to virgin-quality styrene
  • We raised circa £9M from Neste, world leader renewable and circular chemical solutions, and Mirova, sustainability impact investor
  • We are the third highest-growth clean-tech company in the UK by Beauhurst.

Currently Operating in Four Regions
