2K Manufacturing – a manufacturer of a plywood substitute from waste plastics in which Foresight Group is an investor – this week featured in Building magazine.

The article – entitled ‘Eco-friendly alternative to plywood launched’ – looks at 2K's innovative Ecosheet which is made from 100% mixed-waste plastic and is being trialed by contractors for site hoardings before full production later this year.

Like plywood, Ecosheet has similar strength properties and when used as shuttering it gives a smooth finish, needs little release agent and can be used more times than plywood, this is in part because the cut edges do not splinter.

At the end of its life it can be returned to the plant and recycled, rather than being sent to landfill.
