How can we reduce the impact of plastic packaging on the waters of our planet?
We believe we need to recycle more and find ways to use less water in this process.
For example, only in Brazil 800 million plastic bottles of lubricating oil , containing 1.5 million liters of residual oil are discarded annually. Only 1 liter of oil can contaminate 1 million liters of water. Besides that, 1 in 4 human deaths worldwide are caused by environmental contamination and degration, according to UN.
With this in mind, we have developed a innovative technological solution that performs the decontamination and recycling of these packages in an ecological way: without the use of water, and without generation of waste.
More than that, all residual oil is recovered and recycled, becoming a by-product and eliminating environmental risk.
As if that were not enough, the process generates a recycled plastic of excellent quality that allows the preparation of new packages with a cost up to 10% lower, thus creating a true circular economy.
In the last 2 years, we have processed 8 million packages, recovering and selling 400 tons of recycled plastic and 15,000 liters of recovered oil, generating socio-environmental impact benefits, as you can see in the presentation.
This solution is already consolidated in the Brazilian market with all current production sold; and recognized through the most relevant national and international awards won, in addition to the World Water Forum award of 2018 and BID-FEMSA 2018:
We are able to expand this solution through units with high productive capacity, installed in containers, thus multiplying the benefits and contributing to a better world.
