INTRODUCTION

This business was born in 2011 and realizes a steady and annual growth of around 15-20%.

As a company associated with a clear environmental work, their first profile is to be a service company to solve the problems of Polymer Transformation.

It has two main activities:

  • Waste management. For this activity it holds the appropriate licenses of Non-hazardous waste manager, or final manager.
  • Second activity as a Plastic reclaimer. Although it also has a license for the management and treatment of cardboard and wood.

On the other hand, in order to optimize customer service, it should also be noted that – in addition to offer recycled plastic products – the company does trading, which represents a significant volume of sales.

 

IMPORTANCE OF RECYCLED PLASTICS

What is plastic? Where is it used? Is it recycled?

A study published by APME (Association of European plastic manufacturers) reveals that chemical recycling and energy recovery favors the improvement of this material. This process benefits the environment.

 

COMPANY HISTORY

This firm was founded by a couple of entrepreneurs, starting in a 500 m2 warehouse becoming too small in 3 years, so they decided to move to the current one.
