Green Plastics

Turning strong waste into stronger materials

Pitch

We collect waste plastic materials from individuals in the communities in exchange for cash. We will communicate with the individuals through our app where they will give us their address and take a picture of their collection. Though this we create a source of income for the old, disabled and unemployed.
We will then sell the plastic bottles we accumulated to plastic recycling companies / projects.
The rest of the plastics will go to our factories where they will be reinforced and made stronger through a process called PYLORITIC LIQUIFACTION and mixed with molten zinc.
We will turn the ‘new’ plastic into plastic building materials which are a lot stronger to construction companies at a lower price.
