Abandoned, lost or discarded fishing gear can contribute up to 76 per cent of all marine debris found during beach clean-ups.
In one survey one abandoned fishing net is expected to catch two invertebrates per day, one fish every three days and one seabird every five days. Abandoned nets make the perfect trap for animals living in the sea.
With a well-recycled process, these harmful fishnets become a perfect source for making regenerated nylon
Regal Castors has been working silently for last many years by producing nylon chips from using oceanreclaimed fishnet.
Last year alone we used approximately 400MT of ocean-reclaimed fishnet.
Our planet is definitely struggling these years, and it seems as if it has never been more obvious, that we need to take action in regards to improving the environment. At Mater we wish to make an impact in the business industry, therefore our commitments within our production, are now aligned with the Global Goals.
For the past few years, engineers at Regal Castors are doing R&D and are trying to find ways to add other “Ocean Reclaimed” waste like “Plastic Bottles” to our product & we have found a breakthrough. In the year 2022, we added approximately 3.5 million single used plastic water bottles reclaimed from the ocean and gave it new life in over millions of our castors.
