Production of high-quality plastic paving tiles from waste polymers of various types. The production process includes collecting and sorting of plastic waste, processing and sale of finished products on the market.

Its service life is about 50 years.

I have a third category disability.  I know how hard it is to find a job with decent conditions and payment.  Helping these people is extremely important, and it is personal for me.  Moreover, environmental problems affect the whole world, including Ukraine.  It hurts when you look at the garbage in your hometown.  I had an idea to open an enterprise for sorting and processing plastic waste. This will give the second breath to plastic products and benefits for the city.
