Installing Solar Cells

Today, people across the globe are increasingly aware of the importance of minimising plastic waste for the sake of wildlife and environmental sustainability. While efforts to reduce our overall reliance on plastics are essential, it’s equally important to find innovative ways to recycle and reuse the plastics that we inevitably continue to rely on for certain essential items.

Polypropylene (PP), a common rigid plastic favoured for items like shampoo bottles and food containers, is notoriously prevalent in our day-to-day lives and historically difficult to recycle.

Outerwest Recycling Plant in Durban, in South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal province, is stepping up to the challenge and preventing 200 tonnes of plastic per month from ending up in landfills, where it would take approximately 20-30 years to decompose.

After collecting, sorting and cleaning PP products, Outerwest Recycling Plant reprocesses it by melting the polypropylene at approximately 2,400 degrees celsius, running it through water, and cutting it into pellets that are then used to create new products.

Buying solar cells to power Outerwest Recycling Plant is a great way to build a more sustainable future and earn with purpose for 20 years.
