What’s an Ecohub

• An Eco Hub is a facility that acts as a plastic waste collection point, a recycling facility and a manufacturing plant for green building materials.

• The Eco Hub Concept is a socially inclusive model that can be aligned and integrated into a Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Programs, e.g. social “franchising” scheme renewal every 5 yrs.

• HUB is a modern MRF
