Impact Innovations project

Supporting and investing in innovative recycling technology R&D

The future of recycling

We have partnered with Impact Solutions, a product development and technology incubator based in Scotland, to actively support and invest in innovative recycling technology R&D on behalf of our packaging compliance scheme members.

6 million hours of test data

There is good reason why Impact Solutions are a key partner to Ecosurety. Their specialist expertise to nurture and bring to market the recycling technology of tomorrow is absolutely key to our goal of improving UK recycling - particularly when it helps solve the big problems we are experiencing today.

With 120 years of combined experience in plastics and 6 million hours of test data, Impact Solutions are true plastic experts. And with a mission to create a thriving community of innovators, providing them with a support frame work to develop ideas, grow and thrive, they provide a truly unique start-up accelerator and R&D programme.

It was clear they were the perfect partner to nurture fresh thinking from concept through to launch, so it was only natural that we joined forces. By doing so we are able to provide financial support and expertise when it really matters for environmental innovators taking part in their programme.


Success number one

The first project we have supported has successfully undertaken research into removing the colour from waste plastic, returning it to the original virgin colour without degrading the material properties. This will open up huge opportunities and applications, increasing the types of materials currently recycled.
