WASTE MANAGEMENT

Protection & Infrastructure



HOUSES MADE OF RECYCLED PLASTIC WASTE

Reuse plastic waste sustainably to improve living conditions and create jobs in developing countries. 

Contamination from plastic waste is omnipresent. BOXShelter uses boards of recycled plastic waste for the building. Thus, the system not only provides adequate and safe shelter for people in need, but also helps to improve the environment by fighting plastic pollution and promoting recycling.

The recycled plastic boards can also be used for various other infrastructure needs. Some examples: Flooring in tents, furniture, raised beds, fences and much more. They are very easy to process, weatherproof, water resistant, easy to clean and more durable than wood. And of course they are recyclable after use.

The production and construction of BOXShelter creates new jobs in the local economy and thus ultimately contributes to a higher standard of living for the population.

BOXSHELTER IN JORDAN: PROJECT TADWEER

Local development, environmental protection and humanitarian aid 

We are developing a mobile production facility for the local production of recycled plastic Boards from local plastic waste to provide new production materials to improve the local infrastructure.

Our goal is to promote the recycling industry by providing a valuable end-user application from recycled plastic waste and to strengthen the local economy by developing new employment opportunities.
