"The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it" – Robert Swan

ByFusion is a smart waste management company dedicated to transforming all types of waste plastic – both recyclable and non-recyclable – into alternative/green building materials.

Through a patented technological based approach, we enable communities, corporations and governments to realize a cleaner world, efficiently converting and directing an otherwise traditionally wasted material into a building block, thus eliminating environmental waste, saving millions of dollars, creating jobs, improving infrastructure and ultimately revitalizing even the most marginalized neighborhoods across the globe.

ByFusion Supports A Circular Economy

In contrast to a linear economy (‘take, make, dispose’ model of production), ByFusion believes in the merits of a circular economy and was created to promote greater resource productivity, aimed at reducing waste and avoiding pollution, by allowing otherwise disposed of material to flow back into the economy.

We are driven by our belief in developing sustainable solutions to support our global environment – both for our world today and for future generations.

Peter Lewis

Inventor and Chief Engineer

Many years ago in New Zealand, ByFusion’s inventor and Chief Engineer, Peter Lewis, was working on an innovative eco-friendly building system that used structural straw bales to build houses. Spawned from his own patented technology, he envisioned a machine that could address the global plastic crisis by utilizing all types of plastic waste, without sorting, to form an alternative building material. In 2000, Peter patented ByFusion’s clean technology that uses only water and air to create RePlast, the 100% upcycled plastic output. Wanting ByFusion to be accessible anywhere in the world, he designed the machine within a shipping container to allow his disruptive technology to be completely mobile.

Peter has been honored with numerous awards for ByFusion’s genius and impact on the planet, as well as his previous work with his own architectural and design business. Building on a degree in aerospace mechanical engineering, Peter continues to think big about the greatest problems of our time, making him one of the world’s most important “mad scientists.” He lives in Dunedin with his wife, near family and friends.

Alexandra Franzos

Partner Development

Alexandra’s role within Partner Development focuses on building mutually beneficial and sustainable relationships with strategic partners. Alexandra has more than 10 years of experience working in investment banking and funds management across Australia, the United Kingdom and the Middle East. During this time, she had the opportunity to explore her passion for social enterprise and impact philanthropy working with several NGO’s on project planning and implementation.

ByFusion, and its ability to help save our planet from plastic waste, immediately ‘struck a chord’ with Alexandra who grew up in a United Nations World Heritage listed rainforest in Mount Warning, Australia. Ecosystem and nature preservation are part of Alexandra’s upbringing and deeply engrained within her values; for her, ByFusion brings together a circular economy alongside social impact and environmental action.
