We are proud to lead the way in innovative technology and deliver a sustainable solution to the global plastics crisis by removing plastics waste from the environment.
With a $20 million dollar state-of-the-art facility and processing capability of 70,000 tonnes a year – equivalent to almost half of all plastics currently recovered across Victoria – ACP is a passionate driver of a circular economy.
Rather than plastic being collected, sent overseas, reprocessed then sent back to Australia we close the loop and find a sustainable solution locally.
Our process involves transforming large quantities of low-value contaminated mixed plastics from households, commercial and industrial factories into high-quality commodities that can go directly into the manufacture of new products.
This involves sorting and cleaning plastic by polymer type specific to customer requirements, with the end result being a high-quality plastic flake that can be sold and made into more plastic products.
Receive the various plastic streams from our contracted suppliers.
Send plastic through our sorting facility which identifies individual polymers types and colour.
Remove steel and aluminium containers if found within the stream.
Remove small amounts of waste if found.
Individual polymers are either fed directly through to the Flaking & Washing systems or baled into Work in Progress stock for use when required
The flakes from each plant are sorted by size, colour and purity, washed and bagged into bulk bags ready for dispatch
The flakes are sold to local and overseas customers for reuse in manufacturing new bottles, containers and other products
Should your business, government or region be looking for a sustainable plastics solution, Advanced Circular Polymers is well placed to help.
