RESPONDING TO THE GLOBAL DEMAND TO REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE
Plastic pollution is one of the most talked about environmental issues, it’s a huge problem that requires fundamental changes in how plastics are produced, used and ultimately disposed of. One solution is the serious issue of recycling, when waste is converted into new materials. It then becomes a valuable resource and one of the critical reasons why Madeira has been working hard to develop new, economically viable products from sustainable resources.
THE POST-CONSUMER WASTE THREAD LIFECYCLE
Manufactured using recycled transparent bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The process gives post-consumer waste a second life. By using existing materials, no new waste is created and non-renewable resources are saved.
- Recycling of PET plastic bottles…
- bottles are then shredded into flakes…
- then formed into chips…
- melted into liquid and extruded through micro holes…
