- What is your project about and what do you love about it?
We recycle plastic household waste at Stiphout Plastics BV, my other company.
At TUSTI, we developed a way to recycle mixed household plastics. This fraction has to be intensively cleaned to be able to separate all sorts of plastics in our production lines. We have a patented cleaning procedure at TUSTI. We are the first company to be able to clean and separate mixed plastics in this way.
- How does it contribute to improve the environment?
The mixed plastics are now mainly incinerated. With our new development we are able to extract valuable resources and reduce CO2 emissions.
- What challenges have you faced in your entrepreneurial journey that could help others?
It takes a long time to develop a new process. You need to stick to your idea and go for it!
- What kind of support have you found helpful in advancing your career?
Find a good, complementary team and look for subsidies and investors who believe in your idea.
