‘A floating system for placing solar panels above the water, developed in partnership with Profloating, and made out of 100% recycled plastics.’
Keywords: Mechanical recycling, TUV analysis, Product development (R&D + production)
Having started as a non-circular project, our aim is to produce the whole floating system out of 100% recycled waste plastic, and to create a circular model. We have designed and produced some of the Flotar plastic floating elements out of 100% recycled waste plastic. The recycled ones contain 50% post-production waste and 50% post- consumer waste.
We analyse the performances of the recycled floating elements in our FlotaR&D lab and also have the material validated externally with research institutions (like TUV Rheinland) to proof quality and possibility that recycled materials are equal to virgin materials.
