"We are continually investigating new recyclate sources to support the shift away from virgin materials," said Jill Bradford, global marketing manager at Hexpol TPE. "Reutilizing what would be waste and giving it a new life to help keep valuable materials in circulation."
Plastix brings its own set of skills to the table in the collaboration, with expertise in sorting and recycling plastic fiber waste—ropes, yes, but also fishnets and trawls.
"Integrating post-consumer recycled material is essential in the world's transition to a circular economy and requires its usage in all applications possible," said Hans Axel Kristensen, CEO and co-founder at Plastix. "We are excited to be working with Hexpol TPE to make this happen."
