We've moved and now we can scale

At the beginning of Februari Green Phenix moved to Paviljoen Zeelandia. After operating from the founders house for over 6 months, moving to this majestical building is a huge step forward. Each proces now has a designated room, which helps to keep everything ordered and avoid cross contamination of different plastic types.

We have a room in which plastic is sotered, bottle caps, rings and labels are removed and the plastic is cleaned. Then it goes to a shredder room in which bottles are tranformed into flakes. The process for which it is being prepared determines on how fine the flakes are made. 

We have a PET storage room as well as a HDPE storage room. We're in the process of ordering a new shredder and scaling the project by an additional group of SOAW participants. We are starting our first servive contracts, which are basically partnerships with companies in the hospitality sector, that want to recycle their plastic and aluminium waste streams.

All our activities help to keep plastic out of the landfill and the environment and shortly we will have over 20 people that were previously unemployed working with us.
