Waste transformed into Recycled Materials and Products.


What we do.

We advise businesses and organisations on recovering their waste.

We develop new materials and products based on waste.

Every day, cities and their associated activities generate thousands of tonnes of waste which ends up in landfills due to the lack of recycling. This wastes valuable resources while virgin materials – many of them non-renewable – are extracted from our planet. But things are changing and gradually the way towards what is known as the circular economy is being opened up. This focuses on the resource cycle and follows a model based on reusing, repairing, remanufacturing and recycling existing materials and products rather than using virgin raw materials.

At Zicla, as a recycled product company committed to the circular economy, we work so the recoverable waste generated by cities and their associated activities – waste which, although it has interesting potential for recovery, goes to landfill because of the lack of recycling – can be transformed into new materials. This can be produced by industry, municipal authorities, services, etc., but what it all has in common is that it consists of wasted resources.

We make a technical and economic diagnosis of the recovery potential of this waste, and, together with industry, we design the transformation processes needed to turn them into new materials of acceptable quality and price. We work with industry both to design the new materials based on the waste and to adapt the industry’s processes using innovation so these new secondary raw materials are acceptable.

Finally, we identify business opportunities based on the use of these new materials and we transform them into recycled products that can be returned to cities in the form of street furniture and items to improve road safety, accessibility and the enjoyment of the city, etc., making them sustainable, environmentally-friendly green cities.

In this way, at Zicla we offer a value proposition for waste generated by cities and clearly contribute through our recycling projects to returning the waste to them in the form of sustainable solutions that are fully part of the circular economy.
