Recycled Plastic Outperforms Wood, Steel and Concrete Alternatives

October 27th, 2008 by  


i-plas , a UK based company has invented a building material known as i-plas, from recycled plastic that would otherwise be destined for landfill, to produce products which outperform the traditional alternatives of wood, steel and concrete.

According to the company, recycled composite plastic helps reduce carbon emissions, conserves oil and is extremely cost effective. The recycled composite profile has a wood like appearance, its surface is contoured giving it better slip resistance as well as visual appeal.

i-plas Recycled Composite Profiles (RCPs) are the basic building blocks for the company’s range of environmentally friendly, maintenance free furniture and sustainable construction products. RCPs are designed to replace traditional materials used within the construction industry and offer significant commercial and technical benefits over traditional solutions.

The company’s website offers a range of case studies that show how customers have benefited from their innovative recycling technology. For more information go to http://www.i-plas.co.uk/.

  • This could prove to be an exciting technology, as plastic waste is a significant landfill problem, but I do wonder if the products themselves are recyclable.
