Frequently Asked Questions

When post-consumer sourced plastic materials from the polyolefin family (LDPE, HDPE, PP and others) are delivered to one of our quarries, we turn them are turned into a valuable commodity called POLYROK®. This is achieved by using a highly efficient and turn-key recycling system that can be licensed globally.

POLYROK® uses a mechanical process for recycling mixed post-consumer soft plastic packaging. This process is proven, efficient, cost-effective and rapidly scalable. We don’t burn, bury or use any harmful chemicals as part of this process.

We distribute POLYROK® to one of our approved partners, where it is used in infrastructure, construction, building and manufacturing projects. Common and proven applications for the product include:

■ Recycled plastic products
■ Concrete for structural and non-structural elements
■ Permeable concrete and curbing
■ Asphalt
■ Precast applications
■ Acoustic panels and noise walls
■ Sustainable building blocks and pavers
■ Cladding, alternative form ply and insulation
■ In situ structural elements for infrastructure, and more…

We don’t use POLYROK® as crushed rock or aggregate replacement outside of asphalt and concrete, as it’s best to keep the plastic embodied (within a case) where it’s removed from the elements.

POLYROK® has been tested and proven in Australia, a market with some of the strictest standards on earth. POLYROK® is currently the only recycled plastic aggregate that meets the Australian Standard for concrete structures and has approval for use in VicRoads projects.

No, unless ENVRA® approval pending elemental integrity review.

No. The plastic remains below 100decC throughout the process, and no chemicals are added.

Yes, has up to 50% better thermal performance due to the reduction in water as POLYROK® is non permeable.

No, POLYROK is best used in applications where it is fully embodied.
