"With Banyan Nation now beyond the proof-of-concept stage, the company has a strong business case for a circular- economy approach that encourages manufacturers to consider the implications of recyclability and resource conservation. Banyan Nation’s goal – which is aggressive but achievable – is to help transform the way India consumes, recovers, recycles, and views plastic as a resource."
"Banyan worked with our polymer experts and R&D teams to meet our technical specifications and conduct various engineering trails to ensure that recycled plastic granules meet our safety requirement. The circular awards could serve as a much needed encouragement not just for Banyan for the auto industry to adopt a closed-loop circular economy approach for raw material use."
"Banyan's platform (Data Intelligence) has the potential to democratize waste management across the country, empowering cities with critical data and insights to improve collection efficiencies, maximize landfill diversion, and save costs."
"Banyan has exhibited polymer expertise and engineering expertise in conducting multiple trials to improve the quality of recycled plastics and match our technical specifications. We are also impressed with Banyan's sourcing technology which allows them to source large quantities of post consumer materials from the informal sector."
Scientific rigor in segregation, washing and extrusion allows Banyan to identify resins with a high degree of accuracy, prevent cross-contamination, eliminate product and packaging contaminants and produce a consistently high quality product.
Addition of performance polymers allows Banyan to meet stringent thermal and mechanical properties, a must have in high performance applications such as automotive and consumer electronics.
An equal opportunity employer, Banyan provides safe and sanitary working conditions, fair wages, retirement benefits, and health insurance for its workers, setting a high bar for social responsibility, unheard of in a largely informal industry.
Stringent adherence to air and water quality indicators mandated by the pollution control board, ensures that Banyan's processes and products do not negatively impact the environment.
