Recycle all types of PET plasticCONCEPT & RECYC’ELIT
We are an innovative startup vested in solving difficult PET plastic recycling issues. Our patented breakthrough process consists of recycling all types of difficult PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic waste (colored, opaque, trays) from different origins, as well as simple or complex blended polyester textiles.
@ RECYC’ELIT, YES WE CHEM !
Our founders have a proven track record in research and are key players in service to industries. They have decided to use their experience to tackle the problems of plastics with their proven expertise in the innovative approach to valuing industrial by-products. The awareness by the various actors and the common commitment of industries and government authorities to move towards the integration of consumer plastics motivated them to find a viable solution and bring their brick to the wall. By 2025 Europe has committed to integrating 10 million tonnes of recycled plastic.
Separation & Purification
Toward a virgin like resin
We mainly target difficult plastics. Mechanical recycling process, although very efficient for transparent PET bottles, shows some limitations. We listened with great attention to the issues encountered by renowned recyclers and worked closely with them. It turns out that the two types of PET plastics which may presently pose real problems for mechanical processes are food trays and colored plastics. These are not compatible with sorting processes and disrupt the production of recycled PET pellets. We have therefore optimized our process around these two families in order to be able to supply the different ranges of starting monomer bricks and to be able to remanufacture virgin food grade PET. We transform unsorted waste into a product with high added value. We continue challenging our process with all sorts of complex, multilayer and composite plastics with encouraging results.
we have validated the feasibility of food trays recycling by recovering the starting monomers with a purity of +99%.
Colored and Opaque PET
Our reliable and flexible technology allows to recover monomers without need of pre sorting !
Recently, Recyc’ELIT has successfully recycled colored textile materials from different origins back to the starting monomers with very good purities. It should be noted that more than half of the PET consumed in the world each year is consummed for the textile market (50 Mtonnes / year).
Few months ago RecycELIT decided to partner with Utopia in order...
