The challange

With an expected accumulation of plastic waste to reach 30 billion tons by 2050, the crisis facing our planet is a very real one.  There is no one size fits all approach to recycling plastic and with specific challenges, there can only be specific solutions.  However,  significant steps have been made over the years, especially through the introduction of the principles of a circular economy; something that many organisations now strive to incorporate into their business operations. 

Whether it is the manufacturer or end-user plastic waste, the question of how to effectively recycle a broader range/mix of plastic material continues to be largely unanswered – despite global research and investment.  That is, until now…

Solving the challenge with Triton Green Polymer

After many years of research and development, Triton Norway finally made its breakthrough with a pioneering and revolutionary technology capable of literally changing the world and the way in which we use and recycle plastic forever.  

What is Triton Green Polymer?

Based on the System Handling of Waste (SHW), originally developed by Norwegian inventors Dagfinn Zwilgmeyer, Stephan Zwilgmeyer and Bengt Strøm, Triton Green Polymer is a total plastic recycling solution that tackles both industrial and household mixed plastic waste streams allowing for 100% recycling.

This not only solves a huge environmental problem but also provides high-quality raw material that can be reused multiple times at less cost than virgin plastic.

How does it work?

One of the biggest obstacles to recycling plastic is down to the variety and mix of plastic in products. Triton Norway’s first of a kind technology overcomes this by allowing for several types of plastic material to be recycled.   

Using unique compounding technology, plastic waste (including single-use plastic) can be converted into high grade reusable granulates that can be recycled multiple times  This means that plastic waste generated by manufacturers, transportation, and households previously considered unsuitable for recycling no longer has to end up in land-fill or worse still, in our countryside, seas and oceans.  There are some distinct advantages that TGP has to offer including:

High quality material properties – the unique process used to generate superior granulates results in a material that if not stronger than current recycled plastics, is equivalent to virgin material.

Cost/output ratio – energy and cost efficiency benefits in the form of reduced C02 and conservation of extra energy that otherwise would have been expended to produce virgin plastic.  Triton Norway has proven its solution is superior to other forms of technology employed in the recycling process.

Lifespan – although the material lifespan is similar to current recycling standards, as part of Triton Norway’s System Handling of Waste (SHW) principles, products are recycled based on the expectation that those products are designed for longevity. Therefore, single use plastics are directed into specialist waste streams specifically intended for products with a longer lifespan.

Reduce environmental impact and C02 – the overriding objective of recycling is to reduce or minimise environmental impact, overall carbon footprint and energy conservation.
