NEXT MEETING –  Thursday, 21st March – 7 for 7:30 pm

Guest Speaker: David Thompsondavid@poetsystem.com
Company: POET Systems

WASTE PLASTIC INTO ENERGY

Based in Adelaide, South Australia, David has a passionate interest in environmental sciences and a Masters’ Degree in Business Administration (MBA). The refusal of China to take our recycled plastics, 7 million tonnes a year, has resulted in a new challenge to process them here.
He has been a freelance consultant and innovator in the waste/recycling and polymer industries for many years and driven innovation of new technologies and processes through this time.
The launch of the POET System™ (for which David has been primarily responsible) is a viable alternative for polymer waste processors and which, in a unique and patented way, combines low impact microbial digestion of a range of plastics including polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and expanded polystyrene, with energy capture technologies and turns them into biogas and organic by-products that can be used as garden fertiliser and mulch.
