Mura Technology hold the key to recycling waste plastic that is currently considered ‘unrecyclable’ via traditional mechanical recycling, and instead goes to landfill and incineration, often resulting in leakage into the environment and pollution of the world’s oceans.
Mura Technology’s Cat-HTR™ (Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor) process is a form of chemical recycling, and uses supercritical water, heat and pressure to recycle multi-layer and flexible plastic materials back into valuable chemicals and oils for use in the manufacture of new plastic materials. Cat-HTR™ can process low value, contaminated, coloured and even ocean plastics, all considered ‘unrecyclable’ in traditional mechanical recycling processes, enabling communities globally to progress towards a circular plastic economy.
The first site is in development in Teesside, North East England, with additional global sites in the pipeline.
Our planet depends on plastics in so many ways. But we don’t have to live with plastic pollution, particularly in important marine environments like the Coral Triangle. Mura is working to help rid the world of waste plastic by creating valuable products from it and proudly supports the ambitions of BluHope.
Using Cat-HTR™ we can create new plastics from waste, reduce the need for fossil resource and prevent plastic pollution in our environment.
