A Swansea, Wales, engineering company has developed machinery that can turn waste plastic into panels for construction and industrial uses.
Protomax Plastics Ltd. says the panels can replace plywood in building and pallets as well as form a raw material to make kayaks and military products. The feedstock can be discarded plastic bags, old milk cartons and other waste, according to Protomax.
The firm expects to produce the machinery in January. It is getting financial assistance from the Welsh Assembly Government to develop and manufacture the machinery. Protomax now is conducting major trials at companies in the United Kingdom.
