Blue Plastics

Plastic waste recycling

Founding Year: 2014

Location: the Netherlands

Blue Plastics is building eco-friendly and efficient facility for recycling used agricultural film.

European demand for virgin LDPE (low density polyethylene) for agricultural products exceeds 850,000 tons per year. On the other hand, European agricultural industry generates 545,000 tons of plastic waste per year, wherefrom 70 % is dumped and burned, and only 30 % is recycled.

Plastic waste recycling
The Blue Plastics’ recycled LDPE granulate is 99,5% close to virgin LDPE and it will be used by European plastic converters for the production of new film, substituting virgin plastics in some non-FDA applications.

Along with commercial benefits, Blue Plastics will provide environmental benefits: the pilot plant will save up to 30,000 tons of CO2 and reduce up to 75 % of energy needed for primary plastic production.
