Stealing uses for steel

DYNA Engineering’s HDPE (plastic) conveyor guards are providing Australian miners with a sustainable solution for site safety.

In 2017-18, around 3.4 million tonnes of plastics were used, with only 9.4 per cent recycled, according to the World Wildlife Foundation.

Of that 320,000 tonnes, around 46 per cent was reprocessed in Australia with more than half exported for reprocessing.

One of the reasons that a significant amount of plastic waste is sent overseas is because Australia does not currently have a large, sustainable market for recycled waste products.
