High-tech recycled material highly commended at awards
Vertech, who manufacture and distribute highly engineered composite material manufactured from recycled plastic waste, has been highly commended at the National Recycling Awards for its technology.
The company, based in Gwynedd, Wales, used its material to build the UK's first HGV road bridge made from recycled plastic, built over the River Tweed in Peeblesshire, Scotland.
The company states its highly engineered products, offered under the Vertech' brand, are UK manufactured from UK sourced recycled material, completely recyclable, often reusable and will offer significant carbon savings.
As well as bridging, Vertech components can repotedly be used in a wide range of applications in sectors including construction, agriculture and maritime. In thin sheet form, Vertech can also be used to replace plywood, MDF, and a range of laminate sheet materials offering engineered alternatives that are entirely resistant to moisture and most chemicals.
William Mainwaring, co-founder and CEO of Vertech Limited said: "We are very pleased to have been highly commended in this competitive category and are delighted that the judges identified so much potential in our technology. The River Tweed Bridge was just the start. We have a range of exciting products to bring to the market over the coming year."
