Keep looking ahead at a sustainable future

While we recognize the challenges ahead, Upsyde strives in maximizing its positive impact, accelerating the transition to a circular economy. A sustainable future is possible if we act now – at Upsyde, we transform problems in opportunities, stakeholders into sustainability allies, using innovation as a path to rethink waste.

Our contribution to a better world is what makes us unique: we upcycle mixed and hard-to-recycle plastic waste into useful, sustainable, circular goods. By partnering with Upsyde, companies can progress on their sustainable commitments for carbon footprint, reusability, recycling content and circularity.

Plastic waste: what if there’s another way to go?

Currently, much of plastic considered hard-to-recycle ends up in landfills or energy recovery. With our innovative waste-to-parts technology, we demonstrate there is a way – our circular goods are made from 100% recycled plastic.

Those are potential sources we use to produce our circular goods:

Mixed plastic waste

Mixed post consumer waste. In the classical process, this is not the preferable option, as is less profitable.

Undersized platics

These are fine rejects of recyclers. Standard mechanical recyclers struggle to reprocess those.

"waste of waste"

These are production rejects of recyclers which cannot be further used and are treated by them as waste.

Our take on Upcycling

Upcycling is a term used in a variety of contexts and businesses. Upcycling is the act of reusing or recycling discarded products or materials to create a product of higher quality and value, monetary or environmental, in comparison to the original one. At Upsyde, that’s exactly what we do.

Upsyde manufactures final parts, such as pallets, from hard-to-recycle plastics. By doing so, we are enhancing the sustainable and economic value of plastic that would end up in landfills or in energy recovery facilities otherwise. That’s our way to contribute to a circular, low-carbon economy.

While purpose gives us direction, innovation & customization propel our journey. Years ago, we found an innovative way to upcycle hard-to-recycle plastics, and with that the patented technology was born. Years later, we are committed to keep innovating for and together with our partners. In every new endeavor, Upsyde is inspired to build unique customized solutions that favors both ends.

 

Our upcycling waste-to-parts technology enables low quality waste (as mixed or hard-to-recycle plastic waste) to be used feedstock. We bring plastic back to the loop by transforming waste directly into our circular goods. In comparison to standard recycling processes, our technology saves steps, as converts the waste directly into final parts. With that, we maximize efficiency of resources (as virgin plastic and energy).
