Provide tailored transport solutions for each site with our extensive background within the construction industry.
Recycle combustible ACP cladding which has removed from Australian buildings & divert 100% from landfill.
Shredded through a specialised machine and separated into aluminium & polyethylene for reuse in new products.
Recycled materials will be utilised for industry products, such as compliant aluminium packers and other useful purposes.
Designed and built for a service life of 30-50 years, non-compliant (combustible) ACP cladding is now being removed after as little as 3-5 years.
Not only is it a waste of the original cost to supply and install that cladding, now it is also a waste of the resources and energy consumed in the production of the materials.
Aluminium. Polyethylene. Steel.
Options for re-use of combustible ACP cladding are very limited. But we can reduce waste to landfill through recycling of the materials.
We’ve identified pathways for the separation of each material component of ACP cladding, so that they can be recycled into new manufacturing uses.
We provide a full solution to recycle combustible ACP cladding removed from Australian buildings. We will collect materials removed from your site and transport this to our facility.
Crudely speaking, the recycling process consists of the collected panels being shredded through a specialised machine and separated into aluminium & polyethylene powder.
The aluminium will be used for manufacturing of recycled building materials. Ideally, these recycled materials will be utilised in future re-cladding projects, to complete the full loop.
The polyethylene will be moulded into granules which will be remanufactured into other products where the combustible properties of the PE is not an issue.
In contrast to the take-make-waste linear model, our initiative promotes a circular economy and moves away from single use products by feeding recyclables into the manufacturing stage to re-use the embodied carbon within the existing, now redundant ACP cladding panels.
Our strategy is in line with the key current priorities for all levels of government:
- Reducing plastic and aluminium waste
- Removal of non-compliant combustible cladding from buildings
Similarly, as Companies today target net zero carbon footprints it is of great importance to ensure the embodied carbon within the short life cycle and wasteful single use cladding is re-used.
The cost of recycling is a minor part of the re-cladding process (usually 1% of the project). However, it is also the most important aspect when considering future generations as we can assist in minimising our impact on the environment and reduce our carbon footprint.
Our company is 100% Australian owned and run and focused on a sustainable Australian business model.
Our dedicated team of industry experts can walk you through the process and help your business find better ways of reducing the impact to the environment.
