    Circular Economy

    We are looking at setting up a 1 ton capacity pilot plant with a semi-automatic process. This pilot plant will enable the progression of MIW’s upcycling technology to a point of commercial readiness, as well as acting as a meeting point for label packaging stakeholders to work together to close the loop.

    Materials In Works has developed a scalable upcycling technology to produce sustainable raw material from ‘hard-to-recycle’ waste packaging materials. This involves a fundamental shift from conventional ways of obtaining raw materials that are environmentally harmful and release enormous amounts of GreenHouse Gasses.
