ERT for Construction
Environmental Recycling Technologies for Construction (ERT4C) is working on behalf of Environmental Recycling Technologies plc.
ERT4C is a Consultancy organisation which aims to facilitate links between Industry, Academia and other stakeholders to help transfer the Powder Impression Moulding (PIM) technology to the construction industry in the UK and in Europe. The key features of this innovative composite technology are:
- Low cost base
- Improved product functionality
- High strength to weight ratio
- Versatility (from flat sheet above to complex shapes such as barge covers on the right).
New Composite Products
The PIM process presents a unique opportunity to use mixed post consumer waste polymers. The potential products are essentially Recycled Plastic Polymer Composites that can include reinforcing, and be prefabricated to a range of different cross sections and dimensions. For example as the barge cover above.
