How much plastic is in our solid waste? Plastic accounted for only 12% of 254,000,000 tonnes of solid waste created in 2007, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. That’s more that 30 million tons of plastic per year. According to some reports plastic materials can take hundreds years to decay in a landfill. Join our Plastics Recycling Network to get involved in recycling millions of tons plastics annually across the United States.
Recycled plastic can save 7 yards of space in landfills for every one ton. Recycling can help you conserve the additional 80% energy used to make new plastic containers, bottles and other products. It’s obvious why recycling plastics is important.
Baled plastics (specifically plastic bottles) have a high amount of scrap value per ton. Aluminum cans are actually the only other recyclable more lucrative.
Replay Plastics plans to build a PET (polyethylene triterephthalate ) cleaning and refining station in the western United States. All 16 major North American PET recycle plants are currently in the eastern United States. It will have a capacity of 46 million pounds and will use post-consumer bottles that are currently collected in California, Oregon, and Washington States. These states collect more than 200 million pounds each year. The Company will be vertically integrated, and use almost all of its recycled material in its Packaging Division. Any excess materials (clean flake), will be sold to other companies. Manufacturers may sell the extruded sheet to them, who will then use it to thermoform it into high visibility packaging or in other high-value manufacturing operations. The strapping will then be sold to companies that ship large quantities of packages or pallets, like the lumber milling industries.
There is currently no competition in the west for either the Company’s two divisions. Any production in the trading area remains captive and not available to our target market.
It is essential that the Company can obtain post-consumer stock in order to be able to vertically integrate its operations and produce products that are in high demand by the western consuming industries. It would be impossible to obtain enough RPET flake resin at competitive costs without the cleaning or refining section.
For many years there has been a strong market (sellers’′ market) for our products. This industry has a long history of buying based on quality, price and reputation of manufacturers, as well as freight costs, delivery times, and proximity to markets. During such a sellers’ market, buying patterns are often more influenced by availability.
Replay Plastics is a manufacturing company dedicated to converting waste plastic materials into commercially viable products, utilizing environmentally friendly recycling and manufacturing methods. We will make enough profit in order to return significant capital to our investors as well to fund growth and quality product development. We will maintain a fair, friendly, and creative workplace that values diversity, new ideas, and hard work.
Replay Plastics will start a rapid turnaround of products after a couple months to set up the packaging and recycling facilities, purchase equipment and incorporate the company.
