Description: In 2004, Australian Composite Technology (ACT) established its first production facility in a 5,500 square metre single span factory located at Somerton Victoria, Australia. The commissioning of this manufacturing line represented a world first solution for the reprocessing of co-mingled industrial waste plastics with a circular economy outcome in recycled plastic products. The branded product today is known as “plasmar”. Plasmar is 100% recycled from engineering grade polymer material. CSIRO tested for durability and proven to last for more than 50 years. It's a long-life, environmentally friendly alternative to timber.
One of the key ACT objectives has been to elevate industrial plastic waste recycling into a highly presentable, mainstream business activity. Based on 18 years of research, including prototyping of various products, the ACT process is unique in its ability to accommodate volumes of co-mingled polymer waste.
