The problem of plastics has recently been highlighted in the BBC’s Blue Planet II series where we saw a number of sea life affected by micro-plastics that were poisoning the food chain.  Recycling Technologies has developed a means of recycling end of life plastic into a crude oil equivalent they call Plaxx. 

 Adrian Griffiths will be presenting on behalf of Recycling Technologies:

-          The plastics market and plastics recycling

-          How mechanical and chemical recycling are combining so no plastics are left behind

-          The detail of Recycling Technologies’ recycling process

-          Closing the loop on plastic recycling

Please read details of Plaxx here:
