Problem

Various plastic types are used in one product, and they are often attached, and sometimes they are made very hard to detach. Current process of sorting and separating only ensures 98% purity and the 2% of impurity makes the price of recycled plastic down to 53% compared to the price of virgin plastic. This difference in price makes huge gap in recycling plants. Sole production line of recycling plants processes 30 tons a day, 10,950 tons per year, and if they can have 27% more value when selling recycled plastic, they can obtain additional 3.43M dollars annually.

Solution

REBORN provides a bio-tank that utilizes bacteria to separate plastic from other types in order to produce a more purified form that is worth more when selling recycled products, occluding with the situation that many plastic-using companies like Apple, Samsung are enhancing the rate of using recycled plastics in their products. Thus, REBORN promotes the reduction of the necessity of generating new plastic raw materials, utilizing wastes to be cycled as products, with fine purity and value.
