What we do

Centro Plastica

Industrial Partner – Italy

Framework

Centro Plastica Srl is an industrial plastic recycling plant. The company, based near Venice (Italy), has been operating since the early nineties as one of the first enterprises in the field, combining economic profitability and environmental sustainability.

Model

The plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the treatment and transformation of post-consumer plastic packaging into granulated resin of high-density polyethylene (rHDPE), which is sold on the market for the production of new packaging. The sourcing model is mainly based on public auctions and is open to social enterprises and coops. A pioneer of its kind, the plant is inspired by the social business model: no dividend is distributed to shareholders, and profits are entirely reinvested to scale the business and to sustain the start-up of new projects.

Impact

The core recycling activity is aimed at environmental sustainability, maintaining large volumes of plastic in the production stream and sparing them from landfill or incineration. Furthermore, the reinvestment model contributes to multiply the positive environmental impact over time, supporting expansion and dissemination.
