Product: OurkilO creates local micro-factories, where used plastic streams are captured, recycled and produced into new design products. In this way we contribute to a more sustainable Netherlands and Europe and we are part of a new wave of industrial innovation. We minimize transport and CO2 emissions, preserve materials and bring back traditional production. OurkilO does this by closing local, plastic mono-current loops for business customers who have the ambition to become circular. In doing so, we offer companies the opportunity to realize their sustainable innovation ambitions.
BeStart goal: Our vision is to be able to open micro-factories in regions and cities where we are close to the material loops we work with. In the BeStart program we want to work on preparing, developing specific business propositions and finding partners/potential customers in the Northern Netherlands with the ultimate goal of being able to realize the second micro-factory and first regional factory in the Northern Netherlands.
