About the Company

If you are looking for a dynamic and exciting workplace that provides a great team environment, where you can contribute to making a real difference, Recycling Technologies is the place for you.

Plastic is a fantastic material but at the end of its life only 10% is recycled – the rest is burnt, buried or lost into the environment. Recycling Technologies is changing the story of plastics by enabling more plastic waste to be recycled into valuable resources, thereby keeping plastics in the circular economy and out of our oceans.
