MB92 Group and Pinmar collaborate on plastic waste

Superyacht refit, repair, and maintenance company MB92 Group and Pinmar, part of superyacht service and supply group GYG Ltd, are collaborating to tackle plastic waste.

All plastic waste generated during refit projects at MB92 Group’s facilities and Pinmar facilities will be recycled at a new 200m2 plastic recycling centre that has been commissioned in the Port of Barcelona.

The facility has been financed by investment from the MB92 Group with additional support from Pinmar.

It will feature a modular system from KITECH recycling solutions and will have capacity to process more than 100 tons of waste plastic each year.

The development follows a research project spanning over 12 months, led by MB92 Group and Pinmar, working with recycling consultants, materials experts, and equipment manufacturers.

High-quality

The objective was to determine the most sustainable way to continue to deliver the high-quality standards required on refit projects while reducing overall plastic waste throughout both companies.

“We have focused a lot of attention on waste management over the last few years and have made real progress in areas such as waste classification, as well as identifying ways to extend the life of materials,” said Marc Hervás, MB92 Group sustainability manager. “For example, we have implemented a methodology to identify plastic protection for re-use, reducing consumption.

“We are also working closely with local circular economy projects at both sites to upcycle and give new life to certain materials.”

Remy Millott, GYG CEO added: “We carried out extensive research to explore the different materials and options available to replace plastic tenting, and the results were very conclusive.

“When treated properly, plastic is a highly efficient material which can be used multiple times and provides the performance and safety characteristics required for the important superyacht refit projects MB92 and Pinmar undertake.”
