We’re particularly proud to partner with Paltech, an indigenous start-up, as we seek to address the recycling of soft plastics within Ireland.

Tesco Ireland has today become the first Irish retailer to create a recycling solution for soft plastics. 
The retailer is rolling out soft-plastic collection points (pictured) for customers at its 151 stores nationwide and by March this year will accept unwanted soft-plastics from customers at the end of their shopping trip. 
Partnering with indigenous Galway based start-up Paltech, who have created a patented technology, soft plastics will be flaked and processed into construction materials to be used in the Tesco Ireland store network for new stores, in store maintenance and refits including buildings, car-park barriers and signage, in the near future. Pic:Naoise Culhane-no fee

Design and contract manufacture of products from waste plastics.

Our partnership with Tesco Ireland is an example of how our technology can assist to close the loop on repurposing post consumer mixed waste plastic packaging for use in products with a long lifespan.

Within a 12 month period we progressed from initial samples to supply of plastic panels for installation of collection points in 151 stores nationwide.
