|TRANSFORMING PLASTIC TO SAVE OUR PLANET|
Aruba, August 5, 2016 - THE GLOBAL PLASTIC CRISIS
Plastic waste has become one of the most pressing environmental challenges of the 21st Century. Globally, we produce over 300 million tons of plastic every year and recycle only 8%. This amount is expected to double within the next 10 years!
In the US alone, roughly 28 million tons of plastic is sent to landfills every year at the staggering cost of over $1.5 billion dollars annually.
Imagine using all of the plastic waste we see polluting our oceans, parks, roadways, and neighborhoods to rebuild our communities without long processing times, labor-intensive overhead, or toxic output.
At ByFusion, we envision a future where communities can put their plastic waste to work immediately – building infrastructure, housing, and municipal projects. And now, we can.
WHAT IS BYFUSION?
ByFusion is a 100% modular technology platform that converts all types of waste plastic into an alternative building material called RePlast. Our eco-friendly process is a low emission and non-toxic way to “upcycle” plastic waste from our communities, coastlines, and landfills into a readily-usable new product.
ByFusion has been designed as a key component in promoting community-based circular economies – fully supporting the ability to convert plastic waste generated within a city into a building material that can be used locally for construction, infrastructure, and development projects.
