Sebastian Sajoux is founder and CEO of Arqlite, a company that develops new processes and materials to turn plastic waste into value. His experience as an environmental consultant working on Zero Waste to Landfill policies led him to develop a solution for one of the world’s biggest environmental problems: non-recyclable plastics. After deep research on plastic polymers and construction materials, he and his team developed a new process that can transform almost any plastic waste into more efficient materials for the construction industry. With letters of intent from such companies as Mondelez, Unilever, and Danone indicating their willingness to use the recycling services, and explicit interest from concrete companies LafargeHolcim, U.S. Concrete, and Stoneway Concrete to use the construction materials, Sebastian is now leading the R&D stage to finish field tests and certifications, and deliver the first loads of artificial rocks.
