PRODUCER OF CARBON-FREE PLASTICS

A manufacturers partner, working
towards a 100% circular economy

Our productsExpertises

Skytech is a French industrial SME specializing in the transformation of certain plastic wastes from a first recycling phase – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polystyrene (PS) and Polypropylene (PP) – into premium regenerated resins, directly employable by industrialists and plastics manufacturers in their industrial processes.

Skytech is the main partner for companies committed to decarbonization, who want an alternative to virgin petroleum-based plastics. Much more than a recycling company, Skytech is a key link in the circular economy, giving plastics a new lease of life.

A KEY LINK IN THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY, SKYTECH GIVES PLASTICS A NEW LEASE OF LIFE

Thanks to many years of R&D carried out with the support of ADEME, Skytech has developed an innovative, solidly patented sorting platform, enabling the separation of complex mixtures of post-consumer plastics with a purity rate of over 99%. Skytech is also an expert in granulation/formulation, and works closely with its partners and customers to create a finished product with the technical (heat resistance, impact resistance, etc.) and aesthetic (black, gray, white, colored) characteristics to meet their specific needs.

Skytech provides a proven, concrete and operational solution for manufacturers wishing to move towards eco-design of their products, and accompanies them on the path to ecological transition. Skytech has been supported from the outset by Xerys Invest.

OUR REGENERATED RESINS: A CLEAN ALTERNATIVE TO VIRGIN PETROLEUM-BASED PLASTICS

Skytech produces premium regenerated resins from 100% recycled post-consumer plastic waste. This waste, which has undergone an initial recycling phase, comes from end-of-life vehicles (ELV) or electrical and electronic equipment (E&EE). These types of plastic account for around 10% of the world’s waste, and are still under-reused.

Skytech gives new life to these recovered plastics by transforming them into resins of equivalent quality to virgin petroleum-based plastics. These resins can be used directly by industrialists and plastics manufacturers in their production processes. They can be :

  • high thermal and shock resistance
  • fireproof
  • Certified for toy manufacturing
  • Available in a range of colors.

AN INNOVATIVE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY RECYCLING PROCESS

STEP 1: PRE-PROCESSING

We receive batches of plastic waste (ABS, PS and PP received as a mix) from end-of-life vehicles or electronic devices. This waste is cleaned and finely ground to prepare it for separation

STEP 2: SEPARATION

Using our TRIBLAST technology, which is the result of R&D conducted for over 10 years with 4 registered patents, we optimize industrial sorting by triboelectricity to obtain an efficient separation of pretreated polymers. At the end of the sorting process we arrive at purity rates of around 99%

STEP 3: GRANULATION

Once separated, the plastics (rABS and rPS) are transformed into high-quality resins that can be reused in industrial environments. These resins can also be ‘custom’ produced to meet the specifications of our various customers

SKYTECH’s regenration process is circular as well:
   

  • Skytech treats the water used in the pre-processing phase directly on site for reuse.
  • Skytech is 100% carbon-free energy self-sufficient.
