MARUI – Plant Design
Recycling Plastic Bottles with Digital Solutions and Circular Design
Land and Water Resources
Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
MARUI is a circular recycling design-build facility that converts postconsumer plastic bottles into food-grade recycled products. Polymetrix used Bentley applications to establish a connected digital environment where all parties could clearly understand the project as it progressed. Compared to similar projects, MARUI was completed 5% to 10% faster with an increase in resource productivity of 10% to 20%. The digital solutions are also used during operations, ensuring steady, efficient plastic recycling.
