Arqlite is a recycling technology company that is revolutionizing the way we handle hard-to-recycle plastics. Every day, we discard an alarming amount of plastic products that are considered unrecyclable by existing technologies. These products, whether it's laminated flexible packaging, single-use, degraded fishing nets, or improperly sorted plastics, are a huge environmental and economic cost to the planet and its inhabitants. But Arqlite is changing all of that with its groundbreaking upcycling technology. Unlike traditional recycling methods, Arqlite's technology can recycle mixed plastics without the need for sorting. The result is their primary product, Arqlite Smart Gravel - an eco-friendly and efficient artificial aggregate that is ten times better at insulation and three times lighter than mineral gravel. This innovative product can be used in a variety of markets, from construction and roadways to hydroponics and drainage. And Arqlite's latest product, the Arqlite Homogenized Repro Pellet, takes the concept of circular economy to a whole new level. This pure circular economy solution turns previously unrecyclable plastics into a composite homogenized pellet that can be used to manufacture new plastic products. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it's also a cheaper alternative to standard pellets used in injection molding and extrusion. Arqlite is not just transforming the way we recycle hard-to-recycle plastics, but also creating new and innovative products that benefit the environment and the economy by truly leading the way in the fight against plastic waste.
