Recycling of thermoplastic production waste

We process production waste to high-quality recyclates – regrind or agglomerate

Since 1998 we recycle thermoplastic production waste in our recycling plant and today produce many thousand tons of high-quality recyclate. We have the ability to process almost any kind of clean, single-polymer and thermoplastic production waste from massive bars, pipes and lumps to plates, sheets, shavings and powder.

We have built up deep insights into different recycling processes of most of the common polymers. With 30.000 sqm and 3 large production buildings our site provides excellent conditions for a storage of waste and product as well as a professional processing of the material. We also provide the service of contract recycling for plastic processing companies to use the scrap material for new products.

Environment-friendly recycling of plastic waste

We use environment-friendly and resource-saving recycling processes in our recycling facility

From 1998 on we have committed our company to a sustainable recycling of plastic waste. Since then we continuously try to recycle diverse types of plastic waste and find suitable applications by increasing our polymer and process knowledge. Qualified employees conduct the recycling process in knowledge of legal requirements and efficient processes.

As a family business we have a strong interest in a careful use of our natural resources, especially as the recycling rates concerning plastic waste in Germany have by far not reached the target in comparison to other types of waste. Following debates about the finite nature of our resources and the careful treatment of our environment, we feel responsible to develop new and innovative recycling processes together with our partners in the plastic processing industry. In total almost 40.000 tons of CO2 are saved yearly thanks to our energy efficient recycling processes and the use of our recyclates as a surrogate for virgin material.
