Butts recycling

Cigarette butt recycling

The cigarette butts that are thrown on the ground go into the sewers and then into rivers, seas and oceans . It is one of the most dangerous waste for the oceans . Successfully finding a recycling alternative for cigarette butts significantly reduces pollution of water and marine environments.

The cigarette butt is hazardous waste , which implies compliance with strict standards for its transport and treatment. Nevertheless, it constitutes a resource and it is in this sense that we have decided to develop a cigarette butts recycling sector to give it a second life .

Cigarette butt recycling : an innovative and responsible solution

ÉcoMégot has developed an environmentally friendly recycling solution in partnership with French laboratories . Thanks to their research, it is possible to reuse the material from the cigarette butt without using either water or solvent. This patented recycling technique avoids polluting the water, which is a precious and rare resource , as well as the soil!

Thanks to the plastic contained in the cigarette butt filter (cellulose acetate), we are able toextract and mix it with other recycled plastics to create a new recyclable plastic polymer . Since 2018, our R&D unit allows us to initiate advanced research on the cigarette butt, to develop and advance our recycling industry . In close collaboration with our partner laboratories, we have acquired real expertise about this waste. We constantly continue to improve, to always get to know the butt better, to guarantee you the most environmentally friendly sector .
