Who We Are

Halocycle was established because of a shared passion for finding a solution to the plastics problem. We are a dedicated team who have spent a combined 40 years searching for answers to environmental and industrial issues. We are focused on deploying microwave processing in an innovative way as a means of recycling plastic, and particularly chlorine containing plastic (PVC).​

 

The Halocycle mission is to use microwave technology to provide a solution to the plastics problem. Our vision is a circular lifecycle for plastic leading to a dramatic reduction in plastic waste entering landfill, incineration, or otherwise leaking into the environment.

Why not simply “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”?

The purported solution is to: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.

Chlorinated containing plastic

A problem with Reducing the use of plastic is that it is extremely effective in many applications. Not least, it is an excellent packaging material which has many significant benefits, including the reduction of food waste.

 

Re-use is not practicable for plastic that is ‘single use’.

Difficulties with Recycling plastics are currently multi-fold because of the nature of the polymer itself.

 

Plastic packaging which does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic will be subject to a new tax from April 2022 – however, at the moment, there is not enough recycled content available to meet this objective.
