Plastiwood is made up of different types of plastics, all by-products of own processes or materials with little or no market value. These materials are milled and integrated into the mixture in parts according to their hardness, fluidity index, and temperature or melt feasibility.
While performing the plastic transformation process, the PET area determined that there was a waste of specific plastics. This was also noticed in the bags and grinding area but seemed inevitable. These residuals are plastics as well, with similar fusion points and after some research on ways to take advantage of them, the founders of Lyrba began to produce and develop Plastiwood.
This technology provides a recycling option for products that would be part of landfills or even create direct contamination of the environment if not properly disposed of.
+5,000 tons of plastic waste that was not previously recoverable can now be made into quality products.
The Plastiwood products represent an ecological alternative to wood, which helps to reduce the use of this resource, in addition, the Plastiwood process requires lower consumption of water than similar manufacturing.
