A Sustainable Approach

Lets Build A Better Tomorrow, Today.

We are PanelCycle, an Australian owned and operated business and we are on a mission to build a better tomorrow, today. How do we do this? Sustainability is at the centre of our business offering and we are passionate about reducing waste by recycling ACP Cladding waste in the most environmentally conscious way. Our team have over 20 years’ experience in the construction industry, and we pride ourselves on offering a full end-to-end solution to our clients while taking their specific needs into consideration. Our solution, encourages our industry to be more socially responsible with their ACP cladding waste.

Our Solution

Transport

We offer a number of transport options to accommodate your ACP cladding waste needs including skip bins, containers, flatbed trucks & crane trucks.

We understand the importance of removing ACP Cladding waste from your site as quickly as possible. Our process is to take the waste straight from the site to our approved facility and provide transportation records to ensure transparency for you and your client. Our highly skilled team can happily assist you to tailor the best transport solution for your site.

Separation

Our unique separation process is the first of its kind in Australia and we are the first approved waste facility with the ability & technology to separate FR & PE core ACP cladding waste. The process consists of the collected panels being broken down through specialised equipment. From there, it gets separated into aluminium and polyethylene using pulse air and electrostatic separation. This results in over 99% pure aluminium and polyethylene that is ready to be repurposed into new products.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, unfortunately all facility tours had to be cancelled, however this did not stop us in showing everyone what PanelCycle is all about! Our video showcases our end-to-end processes and you can also get a glimpse of our facility (virtually!).

ACP Cladding

Manufacturing

We aim to provide a responsible solution to ACP Cladding waste. How it works is, the polyethylene will be remanufactured by Plastic Forests into other products where the combustible properties of the PE is not an issue. These products include wheel stops, bollards, air con mounting blocks, cable cover and flexible formwork.
Alternatively, the aluminium will be used in the production of steel.

Reporting & Certification

We provide an end-to-end recycling solution for Aluminium Composite Panels which diverts 100% of the materials from landfill and uses the separated materials for manufacturing here in Australia. This is what makes us different! We provide one reporting and certification option. Our reporting & certification exceeds all requirements and expectations of EPA, Government & Green Star.

Project Specific Reporting

We will prepare a project specific report for each individual project. The report will provide full transparency from the moment the ACP leaves your site through to completion of manufacturing into final products. Your report will exceed the requirements of Green Star to provide details of the end products produced from your materials. Each report will include the following details:

  • Details of materials & quantities removed from site
  • Details of materials & quantities taken to facility & processed
  • Details of quantities of separated materials leaving facility & taken to manufacturers
  • Reporting from manufacturers on the products your materials were used to produce 

Auditing & Certification

PanelCycle will be audited and certified by a third party consultant in accordance with Green Star requirements. However, over and above the Green Star requirements, we will engage the third party consultant to audit your project specific report and provide certification that all aspects are accurate and meet Green Star requirements.
