A Multi Million Grant for New Facility in California

US-based company Revolution Plastics LLC awarded a grant of three million US-Dollar from the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) through its Recycled Fiber, Plastic and Glass Grant Program.

Revolution Plastics (founded in 2016 by Delta Plastics, a company located in the Mississippi River Delta), provides free pickup of agricultural plastics – mostly low-density polyethylene (LDPE) film or irrigation tubing – to more than 400 dairies, growers, almond hullers and other agriculture-related processors in California and is the largest agricultural plastic collection operation in the state. Currently, the company’s collected plastic is shipped from its consolidation yards in Central California to Delta Plastics’ facility in Arkansas, where it is washed and converted to resin and used in manufacturing processes to produce can liners, irrigation tubing, agricultural cover films, plastic lumber and other construction as well as agricultural films. Since its inception, Revolution Plastics is responsible for the collection of over 30 million pounds of used plastic in California. The grant will help Revolution Plastics establish a recycling and manufacturing plant in Central California, which is expected to start production in 2018.
