Recycled plastic building material

The start-up

Ecoact Tanzania has invented technology that turns plastic waste into a resilient building material. This energy-efficient and chemical-free process offers an alternative that preserves wood resources within the building and furniture sectors. The start-up gets citizens involved in waste management, by offering health insurance in exchange for collecting plastic waste. The company currently has 167 clients.
