Interview with Healix

Healix creates a circular future for plastic fiber waste by recycling discarded nets and ropes from fishing and farming, preventing plastic from ending up in ecosystems and instead using it as feedstock for the circular economy. The first Healix plant is based in the Netherlands, and is focusing on two types of plastic: homopolymers polypropylene and high-density polyethylene.

To produce their recycled granules, the company follows a three-step process. First, they reduce the fibers in size; then, they wash and dry the small particles to ensure they are clean. In the third step, the particles are melted, double-filtered to remove any remaining contamination, and processed into pellets. 

Healix’s products are available for the global production chain and are suitable for both closed-loop and open-loop systems.
