Ricron Panels is a pioneer of converting low-value multi-layer plastic (MLP) into high-quality, carbon-negative, and eco-friendly building materials using its patented technology. The end applications include furniture, housing, roofing, construction, offering a viable and sustainable alternative to traditional materials. Ricron’s panels provide a high-utility, cost-effective substitute for plywood, metal, and cement roofing, presenting a green building solution for both emerging and developed markets.

Recognized globally for its environmental contributions, Ricron has earned numerous accolades, including the Climate Solver Award for Innovation in Technology 2019 by WWF.

Founded by visionary entrepreneurs Rahul Chaudhary and Radhika Chaudhary, Ricron’s patented technology transforms non-recyclable plastic waste into versatile, waterproof, rust-proof, fire-retardant, heat-resistant, termite-proof, and impact-resistant building materials.

The company recycles 5,000 tonnes of plastic annually, preventing one ton of deforestation, avoiding the emission of 4.01 tons of CO2, and saving 21,000 MJ of energy for every ton of Ricron produced. Additionally, Ricron was the first company in India to generate an Extended producer responsibility (EPR) credit.

The funds raised in the current round will be utilized to bolster marketing and distribution efforts to expand Ricron’s presence in the Indian market, further amplifying its environmental and economic impact.

Rahul Chaudhary, Director and Co- Founder, Ricron Panel says, “Waste management is emerging as a major concern across the nations worldwide as we continue to develop and urbanize. India is one such country which is constantly developing along with its growing population and consumerism causing rapid increase in plastic intake. To mitigate this formidable plastic wastage, Ricron was established to back waste management and offer a promising solution. With our state of art technology, today we are manufacturing responsible building materials by recycling 5000 tons of plastic per year and in the next 2 years, we plan to recycle 24000 tons per year.”
