Summary of the pledge
Mayansi is a new industrial company born with the clear objective of improving the recycling process and the valorisation of plastic waste and transforming it into innovative products. For this, the company applies its own R&D to manufacture and market irrigation equipment and pipes made from recycled plastic (R-PET). The application of R-PET to those products is totally new. In general terms, the problem today is that in Europe less than 8% of the plastic product are manufactured with recycled material coming from plastic waste. In the specific case of irrigation applications and pipes, they are made with plastics, mostly not recycled (mainly PVC, PE and PP). In principle, all products of MAYANSI will be elaborated to more than 95% with R-PET. The use of virgin PET is not foreseen. The use of other qualities of R-PET less demanded in the market (mixed R-PET, multicolored R-PET...) will be encouraged for the ranges of products that allow it.
