About Recycling Technologies

If you are looking for a dynamic and exciting workplace that provides a great team environment, where you can contribute to making a real difference, Recycling Technologies is the place for you.

Plastics is a fantastic material but at the end of its life only 10% is recycled – the rest is burnt, buried or lost into the environment. Recycling Technologies is changing the story of plastics by enabling more plastic waste to be recycled into valuable resources thereby keeping plastics in the circular economy and out of our oceans.

We have developed an innovative modular machine to chemically recycle plastic waste back into a valuable petroleum raw material, for use as a feedstock in new plastics production, waxes and fuels. Using a chemical approach to recycling, no plastic gets left behind. Using a modular approach to process design, we harness the power of mass production to scale up quickly and cost effectively.

The company has commissioned a near-full scale test plant and is now ready to begin commercial operations and establish the systems for mass manufacturing of its flagship RT7000 machine.
