Our current rate of consumption and waste generation far out paces our ability to recycle. 160,000 plastic bags are thrown out every second globally.
The reuse of glass bottles on a commercial scale in Canada, is only widely adopted in the beer industry. The reuse of milk bottles, common up until the 1960s have disappeared.
Paper, glass, metals such as aluminum, No. 1 and 2 plastics are commonly recycled.
No. 3-7 plastics are difficult to recycle and often end up in landfills.
Too much material ends up in landfills.
No. 1-5, 7 plastics are used.
Wood from construction, demolition, agriculture and municipal collection.
Other aggregate landfill material.
Composition of materials formulated depending on the product being produced.
Granulation and shredding into an aggregate.
Mixed and machine blended.
Propietary binding agent.
Formed in a 3D heat press.
Packaging and distribution.
G5 Heat BLOK
G5 Rail Tie
Strong, readily available, inexpensive building
material for the construction industry.
A renewable energy source alternative.
Cheaper maintenance costs means safer rail transport.
ReGen Composites acknowledges that in order to create wide-spread adoption of the G5 Technology requires the support of federal and municipal governments. We believe that the widespread adoption of the G5 BLOK will revolutionize the entire work-flow of waste management and will foster a new paradigm that, “our refuse is one of our greatest untapped resources.” The G5 process will need to be scaled to a national and even a global level to be truly impactful and create “green” communities.
Businesses which would profit from G5 Technology, will need access as new markets are explored. The construction, heating, rail transport and waste management industries could immediately take advantage of this process.
