Aquapak Polymers Ltd (“Aquapak”) is a UK manufacturing company with a ground-breaking plastics technology which allows a multi-functional application suite in combination with a variety of end of life solutions, including AD and composting.
The Company effectively started operating in 2010 to exploit some promising technology that had been under development for a number of years, but required substantial additional development work to be turned into a versatile and economic process that could be run at large scale. The operations have been largely out-sourced in early years to adi Electrical Limited, part of the Systems adi Ltd Group, a major provider of a wide range of engineering services based in Birmingham. However, Aquapak has been building up its own operations, running as an increasingly independent entity since 2012 and is in the process of building a purpose-designed manufacturing site in the UK.
Aquapak has developed a ground-breaking specially formulated polymer film, which offers greater functionality than many regular plastics in terms of strength and durability, but is recyclable in an energy efficient way, and has excellent ecological credentials in end-of-life processing. In fact it is recyclable, compostable & anaerobic digestible in all modern industrial forms of waste disposal. Aquapak can therefore make a strong and immediate contribution to changing the way plastics are used in certain global sectors such as food waste, hospital hygiene, electronics and food packaging, as well as in multiple niche applications.
