ReCircle is a system that allows for 100% closed-loop recycling of glass, PET & HDPE plastic containers, and steel and aluminium cans by guaranteeing zero contamination of used-materials.
Closed-loop recycling means that at the end of a product's useful life it can be re-manufactured back into its original product, closing the resource loop. Currently, the highest closed-loop recycling is on PET bottles in Europe at about 9%.
ReCircle Recycling Ltd (RRL) aims to address the problem of contamination with our patented technology in the form of a recycling appliance.
The appliance, or “ReCircle”’s main function is to ensure captured used-materials are kept separated with 100% accuracy. By keeping each type of used-material separated and 100% pure, the appliance will ensure the inherent material value is not lost due to being mixed with other different materials – the major problem with the current recycling system.
The ReCircle appliance does this by using sensors to ensure the user places the used container in the correct receptacle. Incorrectly placed items will not be accepted thereby removing the inevitable human error in the complicated task of identifying material types on hard to read labels.
The appliance then cleans, removes labels and processes each used-material into an easy to sell valuable product. A ReCircle will process PET, HDPE, clear/green/brown glass and aluminium and tin cans with further materials to follow in future.
By guaranteeing 100% purity of recyclable materials, ReCircle can;
• Remove the need for the current expensive and inefficient collection of co-mingled recyclables and the ensuing problematic sorting & separation processes.
• Guarantee 100% closed-loop recycling of glass, aluminium and plastics (PET & HDPE) processed by the ReCircle appliance.
• Retain the value of used recyclable container materials, so they can be sold at a premium and successfully closed-loop re-manufactured after their useful life.
A ReCircle appliance is designed to be installed into your home, office or anywhere else used-materials exist such as universities, music festivals, hospitals or football stadiums.
Not only is the appliance hygienic and odourless, it can also store 10 times the material your normal recycling bin can, and will transform your everyday recycling chore from smelly bins that need to be dragged from the basement or curb every week, to a clean and easily loaded appliance that rewards your recycling efforts by tracking your carbon reductions, and guaranteeing that 100% of your recycling is closed-loop recycled.
ReCircle will provide a closed-loop system that makes recycling financially viable, not a burden on the tax payer and environment.
