Environment

Plastfix is passionate about the environment and reducing the volume of automotive plastic waste that is sent to landfills. The recent global push for businesses to be more sustainable, better manage their parts waste, and increase their reuse ratio has intensified. Plastfix provides businesses the ability to contribute to the environment by reusing more plastic parts using our restoration processes and tools.

Sustainability

Plastics are made from raw materials like natural gas, oil or plants,
which are refined into ethane and propane, the polymerisation process
turns these components into plastics through heating and moulding processes.

Recycling one metric tonne of plastics can avoid the emissions of 2.5metric tonnes of CO2 when produced from virgin raw materials.

Historical carbon budget: Cumulative contributions to the global carbon budget since 1850 illustrate how source and sink components have been out of balance, causing an approximately 50% rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration.
Future carbon budget: The remaining carbon budget to limit global warming to 1.5°C, 1.7°C and 2°C is 420 GtCO2, 770 GtCO2, and 1270 GtCO2 respectively, equivalent to 11, 20 and 32 years from 2022. 2475 GtCO2 have been emitted since 1750.
