With its characteristics, plastic is a perfect material for the circular economy. It is durable, light, easy to process, and energy efficient to recycle. Compared to other materials such as paper or glass – with hundreds or even thousands of years of craftsmanship, production, and recycling history, the production of plastic on a broader level just started in the middle of the 20th century. The era of establishing hands on craftsmanship was skipped, starting straight at an industrial level – with the need of cost-intensive machine parks, extensive know-how and economically viable only with the production of large batches. The recycling process is quite simple but due to the lack of access to basic recycling technologies and know-how, plastic waste can barely realize its potential as a valuable raw material in manufacturing. Most often it gets incinerated or accumulates in landfills or the natural environment as waste. We are creating simple access to plastic recycling and open a  whole lot of possibilities for various target groups and topics. Our technology is in use in more than 60 countries on six continents and there are plenty of success stories to tell.

Wir sind gespannt!
