A boy from the resident Bhilwara, Rajasthan named Aditya Banger started his startup in the month of January in the year 2021, which recycle plastic into fabric. He has a manufacturing Unit in Bhilwara.
17 -year-old boy as a responsible citizen of the country India, has started recycling plastic bottles, wrappers and covers to make the fabric to reduce the burden of the environment.
Aditya Banger is Currently in class 12th in Mayo College. He also belongs to the textile manufacturing family
In an interview with “The Better India”, Aditya Banger said that
“The process takes one or two days but the fabric produced is stronger than regular cotton and is more durable,”.
His Company “Trash to Treasure”, recycle up to 10 tonnes of plastic into fabric every day. In an Interview, Aditya talked about the idea from where he gets this idea of recycling.
He said that two years ago he went on a business trip to China with his uncle who is the owner of Kanchan India Limited, to see new manufacturing techniques for producing fabric.
He added in his statement, “That is when I came across a unit that was converting large quantities of plastic waste into the fabric. It not only reduces waste going into the landfills as well as produces good quality material and creates employment locally,”
When he returned from the tour, he pitched this idea to the entire family and they supported his idea and helped him in starting the new venture.
His project was funded by his uncle company, Kanchan India Limited, for whom the fabric will be made,”.
He told the whole process of how they collect the bottles and recycle them. He said that he sources plastic waste from all over the country. He started connecting with local waste collection centres and purchased PET grade plastic for Rs 40/ kilogram.
And when the waste reaches the manufacturing unit. Bottles are thoroughly cleaned, the labels are removed and allowed to dry.
Then the bottles are chopped into fine flakes and melted to remove toxic chemicals. The melted plastic filament when cooled down becomes the fibre.
