NURDLE IN A NUTSHELL

We make sand sifting trommel machines, to aid in unearthing buried plastic from the sand. We focus specifically on micro-plastic nurdles, as these tiny plastic pellets cause havoc on our wildlife and beach cleaning communities find these particular plastic pests the hardest to recover. Our sieves are specifically designed to remove as much plastic as possible whilst leaving all the sand and as much organic matter on the beach.

WHAT ARE NURDLES

Nurdles are the raw industrial form of plastic. To make your plastic item, nurdles are poured into an extrusion, compression, or injection moulding machine to be heated and moulded into the desired shape. They are small, between 3-5mm, so that they can act as a liquid when measuring out proportions. Unfortunately, nurdles are very cheap to buy and spillages are common – if you’ve ever been to a plastic manufacturing plant, you’ll know that they are absolutely everywhere, inside and outside.

Nurdles are spilt at all points in their production, from initial creation to transportation, to moulding and finally when they’re recycled again. The only way to prevent nurdles from entering the environment is to make the facilities that deal with them nurdle-tight.
Nurdles make up a large fraction of micro-plastics in the environment yet, broken down plastic shards, bio-beads, and polystyrene are just as common.

THE TROMMEL

An estimated 6,600,000,000,000 individual nurdles pollute European seas, and they are notoriously hard to remove. We want to help. Our Trommel is a firm step towards ensuring that as many nurdles are collected and recycled safely and sustainably.

OUR ULTIMATE GOAL

To create an industrial machine that removes plastic, en masse, down to the size of a grain of sand.
