Since 1950, only 9% of plastic produced has been recycled. Plastic pollution in the ocean comes from poorly managed waste on land and becomes irreversible once it reaches the sea. By recycling 1 out of 2 waste in the 30 coastal countries most affected by this plastic pollution, 40% of global pollution could be avoided. Simple valorization systems must be quickly put in place to address this problem and build a local recycling economy.
The Plastic Odyssey Local Factories are inspired by innovations and systems used on the ground worldwide. They bring together in a container all the necessary machines to transform waste into new material or objects.
In addition to a turnkey factory, we provide solutions for financing, technical and commercial support to ensure entrepreneurs succeed and have a lasting positive impact on their community and the environment.
← Micro-factory developed with BGS RecyPlast in Conakry, Guinea, to make recycled plastic pavers.
Our factories concentrate best practices we have studied and the know-how of partners we have met over the last 5 years. They have all been tested in industrial environments around the world. Machine configurations are standardized, modular and adapt to the needs of each entrepreneur.
Our micro-recycling factories can process between 200 and 600 tons/year of plastic waste.
Robust machines that are easy to handle and maintain, repairable, recyclable and locally built at lower cost.
Collaborative technologies in open access to multiply the dissemination of this knowledge and maximize the impact of plastic recycling.
Production units that promote resilience, local circular economy and limit transportation that compromise economic profitability.
We build ecosystems of entrepreneurs in our network: local authorities, private companies, waste management organizations, etc.
Plastic Odyssey played a crucial role in the rapid and efficient development of BGS Recyplast. Thanks to our partnership, we built a factory perfectly adapted to my clients’ needs, which allowed us to meet market demands and maintain sustained growth.
