MBA Polymers is the world leader in the production of recycled plastics from end-of-life durable goods such as computers, electronics, appliances and automobiles.

The company has developed a proprietary process which allows it to produce high-value plastics, from complex waste streams, with a quality which is virtually indistinguishable from virgin resins, using one tenth of the energy and natural resources utilized by traditional plastics’ factories. MBA Polymers is a truly global corporation, headquartered in California and currently operating three facilities located in China, Austria and the UK, in JV with outstanding local partners.

The company’s customers include top global brands in the electronics and appliance industries such as HP, Nestlè and Electrolux. MBA was named a “Global 100 CleanTech company” in 2009 and, in 2010, Mike Biddle, MBA’s founder, received the “Economist’s Innovation Award”.
