Falepa Corsica

From recycled plastic, to urban agriculture 2.0 and prisons

Putting low-tech technology to work for plastic recycling, sustainable food and people in difficulty. Falepa Corsica has developed a complete chain for recycling plastic in the circular economy, through the prism of the social economy. This inclusive economy enables us to give work to people who are the furthest from employment. It’s inclusion at the service of innovative projects.

A double-stage rocket…

Falepa Corsica has been involved in social integration through economic activity in Corsica for 20 years, and has developed workshops focusing on the ecological transition. It all starts with the manufacture of recycled pallet containers for the collection of plastic corks, then only 4 operations are needed to transform waste into a secondary raw material that can be put to immediate use. This activity touches on all the components of the circular economy: territorial economy, green economy, economy of use, economy of functionality, experimentation, reproducibility of the model, awareness-raising, meaningful activity, etc.

Member of Precious Plastic France, Europe and International, Laureate 2022 of the Fondation de la mer, Laureate 2022 of the actors of sustainable tourism in the waste management and circular economy category, Falepa Corsica is currently the only integration project in France to have a plastic recycling unit enabling it to make 100% recycled products. The creation of customized products is limited only by the imagination. The company’s injection molding machine, extruder and hydraulic press enable it to offer limited-series products for local authorities, companies, hoteliers and private individuals, such as furniture, bars, bricks, plates, credenzas, key-holders, identity products, etc.

The second stage of the rocket is to couple this plastic recycling unit with an even more ambitious project for the ecological transition to food. The aim is to conquer unused urban spaces and bring them back to life, not only feeding the population with sustainable, zero-carbon-impact food, but also reintroducing water into cities, reintroducing biodiversity, reconnecting people with living things and helping to lower city temperatures. Recycled plastics at the service of urban agriculture 2.0 by manufacturing hydroponic modules to install nourishing oases by Falepa Corsica.

Falepa Corsica is currently working on a project with the prison administration to introduce the first plastic processing workshop on the downstream part of the production chain in a prison, so the association is working on two levels: integration and the environment.
