Plastix is a cleantech company recycling waste fishing nets, trawls and rigid plastics into high-quality plastic raw materials.

The jury says
Recycling plastics is one of the aspects in the circular economy associated with the highest hopes, and Plastix is a first-mover. In recent years, Danish companies have developed methods to turn fishing nets and trawls into plastic granulate that can be used as the raw material for new products. A niche in plastic recycling that is particularly relevant for the marine environment. High-tech innovation with the potential to turn the waste currently polluting the world’s marine environments into valuable resources.
