A New Solution to the Plastic Problem

Up to 30 jobs are promised in a €12 million development in Portlaoise in what is being described as the world’s first commercial plastic ‘plastic waste to wax’ plant.

Employing 16 people initially, it is claimed that there is significant expansion potential to grow through exporting the technologies to the UK, European and US markets.

Trifol says it produces eco-friendly and value-added ‘EnviroWax’ from 100% plastic waste. The company says wax is widely used in a variety of industries from personal cosmetics to candles, and from crayons to chewing gum.

Trifol’s technologies claims to be able to process over 50% of plastic waste such as polythene and polypropylene film typically used in packaging applications. Trifol says it will procure directly and indirectly from industrial and commercials sources.
