Chemical free technology to transform ocean plastics into plastic timbers for building, construction as well as furniture making.

Ove 8+ Million tons of plastic waste end up in our oceans each year, because waste management is one of the environmental problems that most cities are struggling to manage. As the number of residents in most cities is increasing so is the production of solid waste. Very unfortunate, effective environmental and sustainable measures to manage the waste are lacking.
On the other hand, Deforestation is a big problem; a 2017 report by the UNEP estimated that Earth's total forest area continues to decrease at about 13 million hectares per year. The growing demand for timber in building, construction and furniture making activities in our country was putting a lot of pressure on the country’s forests reserves and natural forests around Mount Kilimanjaro (Our country loses about 400,000 hectares of forest every year). If nothing were done quickly, our country would suffer irreparable environmental damage.
However, we realized that If only we could produce an alternative product to timber that was strong, longer lasting, cheaper and environmentally sustainable, we could definitely profit from the profitable timber market while helping to save forests and preventing plastic waste and packaging materials ending into oceans.
The Solution, We have developed a chemical free technology called “Waxy ӀӀ technology” to recycle and transform post consumer plastic garbage and packaging materials into durable and long lasting plastic timbers used for building, construction as well as furniture making, Plastic timbers are affordable alternative to wood timbers, hence reduces the need for building material manufactured from wood, helping to preserve forests, cut down on deforestation and further mitigation of climate change.
