Using Recycled Content – Supply Chain Project

High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Polypropylene (PP) Trial for the Construction Sector and Transport of Hazardous Goods

The objective of this project was to identify, test, and prove evidence-based solutions to incorporate recycled content into lightweight polymer-cement composites; waste paper-plastic and metallised composites; and containers designed for UN certification for the transport of hazardous goods.

It is anticipated that tried and tested solutions will provide confidence to manufacturers that low-value waste materials can be used for the economic production of high-quality products. We hope to minimise the fear of perceived implications, such as increased energy consumption, and reduced quality.
