Low-Carbon Materials.
From Waste.
For Good.

Circular11 transforms waste-bound plastic

into low-carbon fencing, furniture, and landscaping products for the construction and estates sectors. We combine material science and machine learning to expand what it’s possible to recycle, and we’re on a mission to turn the global waste problem into a supply-stream for the materials we need in a net-zero world. Doing that takes three steps

We combine material science and machine learning to expand what it’s possible to recycle, and we’re on a mission to turn the global waste problem into a supply-stream for the materials we need in a net-zero world. Doing that takes three steps

01

Recycle

We collect directly from companies and communities with problem plastics, or work with sorting facilities that have large volumes of plastic that cannot be separated or resold. We quantify how much plastic would have gone to incineration or landfill (our ‘additionality’).

02

Reprocess

We shred this material down and create a chemical and mechanical profile of this waste. This is fed into our machine learning algorithms, which work out how to enhance the performance of these waste streams to the requirements of each product, after which the material goes through in-house strength testing to guarantee product quality.

03

Remanufacture

Finally, we use a process called extrusion to create plastic lumber, which we then make into finished products. We use our own digital operating system to track what plastic streams end up in each individual product, along with the carbon used and diverted in its production.

Benefits

Tree

Net Zero

Our supply chain directly diverts carbon emissions from plastic incineration, a process more carbon-intensive than coal-production, meaning that more carbon is prevented than is used in production.

Circle

Circular

We recycle all of our own products and those of our competitors, and will work with you to collect it at end of life, ensuring that plastic stays in the economy and benefits people & planet for centuries.

Abacus

Traceable

All impact is quantified and accredited so that it integrates with carbon reduction targets and ISO 14001. Alongside EPDs, we can issue product-specific reports that evidence product impact.

The two founders of this company, Connor and Ben, started Circular11 because of their time working on a waste management project in Nepal, where they could see the impact of waste burning on the families they lived with.

Our goal is to bring our technology back to communities without waste management, like those we lived with in Nepal. To do this, we’re rethinking plastic on a global scale.

The 11th Sustainable Development Goal states that everyone deserves waste management, and every community on the planet should be able to build with net-zero-carbon materials.

We’re called Circular11 because we believe that the circular economy can use one problem to solve the other.

1

Plastic waste is the one material that almost every settlement in the world has in abundance. Our technology unlocks its potential as an sustainable, affordable, and locally-sourced material.

2060

By 2060, there is expected to be one billion tonnes of annual expected plastic waste. What if this could supply the materials for the net-zero world we need?

Working With Wembley Stadium To Achieve 100% Recyclable Pitches

It is the result of a two-year project to find a suitable solution to recycling modern-day football pitches, which are a hybrid of grass and synthetic plastic.

The project is being billed as a first in the world of football.

A large amount of professional playing surfaces in today’s football games contain plastic to make them more durable.

Hybrid pitches reportedly offer increased reliability in variable weather and can be used for multiple purposes, yet their recycling has been a challenge.

Circular11 Reach Final Stage of National Highways Low Carbon Program

Fully circular, low carbon fencing materials, net-zero asphalt, and smart fiber reinforced plastic bridge beams are among the projects participating in a program seeking low carbon solutions on National Highways’ network.

Four firms have made it through to the final stage of the Accelerating Low Carbon Innovation program organised by National Highways in collaboration with Connected Places Catapult and each is set to receive up to £80,000 to make their vision a reality.
