We want to work on all types of waste, but we got to start somewhere. Plastic waste is generally high-value and nimble, so it makes sense to start there. We are developing recycling processes to treat three different types of it: multi-layered plastic (MLP), polycotton and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). MLP and polycotton are generally considered to be low-value plastic waste while PET is high-value, serving as a hedge.
Our goal is to convert this waste into high-quality 3D printing filament which we will then use to produce high-margin products such as educational toys and healthcare educational prototypes. 3D printing allows us to be nimble and rapidly adapt our products to market demand, allowing for the optimization of feedstock.
