Polymer Re-Formative Engineering We have developed leading edge Process Engineering and Formulations Technology able to use mixed plastic packaging waste to manufacture inert, longer lasting, maintenance free products in place of tropical hardwood, treated softwoods and concrete. It offers a proven way to make environmentally sustainable products resulting in: + reducing landfill of short life plastic packaging waste + significantly lowering carbon emissions + avoiding destruction of hardwood in tropical rain forests
Polymer Re-Formative Engineering • Our Re-Formative Engineering technology, developed over 8 years by Rod Fox, is a pioneering automated process, where high volumes of domestic polymer waste are transformed into load-bearing structural engineering components and systems, such as coastal groynes and railway sleepers, using these polymer composites. • Production scale trials of the process were completed successfully, in conjunction with Tarmac, a CRH Group Company, who funded this vital part of the development. • The recycled polymer compositions were developed with over £ 1. 8 M funding by the Innovate UK and QSTP at Sheffield and Qatar Universities, led by Professor Alma Hodzic, who joined us in 2016 as Director of Research.
Polymer Re-Formative Engineering • The overall commercial and highly profitable opportunity for application of these composite formulations in civil engineering is massive and will amount to a new multi-billion Pound industry in the U. K. alone. • The environmental impacts will surpass the financial benefits in terms of reduction in carbon emissions from manufacturing, further restrictions in the use of harmful creosote and the prevention of deforestation opens significant commercial export opportunities to licence the technology. • Our research results have been published in well-cited high quality journal papers and the current implementation of this R&D is funded by Tarmac, a CRH company.
Polymer Re-Formative Engineering This is the first time that recycled polymer composites are able to match the properties of far more expensive tropical hardwood species and compete with treated softwood on price. With fibrous reinforcement, the strength is exponentially increased and surpasses that of the highest grades of hardwood.
Polymer Re-Formative Engineering Ø Licensing the technology in the U. K. presents an opportunity for up to 20 plants to be built each up to 20 k tonnes capacity providing licensing fee income up to £ 120 million during the next 15 years together with associated project management fees adding up to a further £ 7 -8 million. Ø Licensing the technology globally provides an ongoing opportunity for many more plants to be built providing ongoing licence fee and project management income. ü The market applications for these composites offer stability and growth unlike traditional plastics recycling, where markets are controlled by its link to oil and virgin polymer prices and the vagaries of Far East spot market trading. ü Investment required is £ 250, 000 to which an agreed shareholding in the Company will be allocated. A detailed financial budget proposal is available to interested parties.
Polymer Re-Formative Engineering • Rod Fox, M. D. , leads the team having more than 40 years experience in development and high profile project management in the plastics recycling sector. In 2014 he was appointed by RSSB as the Industry Expert representing the UK on both the European and ISO technical groups to develop standards for polymer composite rail sleepers. • Professor Alma Hodzic, Ph. D ANU CEng FIMech. E FRAe. S FIMMM FHEA is Director of Research at Revaluetech Ltd. specialising in the technology scale-up and commercialisation of her recycled polymer composites research, developed and established under her leadership at The University of Sheffield between 2005 and 2015. • William Hopkins, Commercial Director is widely experienced in commercial, financial leadership and administration to ensure contract compliance and delivery target milestones are monitored. • Daniel Fox is an experienced engineer responsible for business development who additionally is able to use his knowledge of quality, environmental and management standards procedures with certification bodies wherever the Company operates. • John Russell has more than 40 years experience installing, commissioning and production of plastic extrusion manufacturing systems for clients in the U.
