Non-recyclable plastics

Mixed and unsorted plastics are difficult and expensive to sort. Contaminated plastic from materials such as food or organic material can also render plastic non-recyclable. Sorting, cleaning and recycling is always the first step, however where this is not possible, Wanless shreds and processes plastics waste in a thermal process to generate steam and electricity (SRF & RDF) due to the inherent calorific value of the material.

Our vision goes deeper than recycling

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
