Under the leadership of David Stover, Bureo collaborates closely with fishing communities to give them the tools they need to properly dispose of their fishing nets after they are no longer in use.

Furthermore, the business can now turn the nets into NetPlus, a premium, 100% recycled Nylon 6 material that is fully traceable and totally recycled thanks to recent improvements in its recycling process.
