Introduction:

I grew up close to a nature reserve and developed a deep love for nature from a young age.  I have always been curious about how things are made and pursued engineering as a career.  With the creation of Ecoplas Australia, I get to combine these two interests for the betterment of the environment in the region by creating a circular economy.

 

The Process:

We collect and process empty bottles ( HDPE), and plastic bags / film ( PE), into small flakes and granules.  These are then blended with a master-batch containing colour and UV-stabilisers, before extruding the final products.  The key products are durable poly fence droppers and park furniture.
