When waste becomes raw material
Active contribution to resource conservation:
Our PE granulates from
More and more products will be made from recycled material in the future; this is what consumers and legislators are demanding. By closing the material cycle for polyethylene, we recover raw materials for the plastics processing industry and give packaging, for example, a new life - this is how the circular economy should be.
By using our recycled material, primary plastic can be saved. can be saved. This conserves natural resources and significantly reduces the emission of climate-damaging gases. climate-damaging gases considerably.

Beim Blasen von dünnen Folien < 20 Micron ist Stippen-Bildung nicht vermeidbar. Diese sind typisch für Postconsumer-Rohstoffe, beeinträchtigen jedoch nicht die Verarbeitungstauglichkeit. EX-BASIC-Polymere sind besonders geeignet zur Abmischung mit HD-PE zur Erhöhung der Produktsteifigkeit.

Inhomogeneity of the input material and the plastic mixtures it contains make high-quality recycling of packaging waste a challenge. Thanks to our in-depth experience in handling plastics and our patented cleaning process, we nevertheless succeed in obtaining clean and unmixed PE-based plastic granules. This is the basic prerequisite for manufacturing standardized products of consistently high quality.
For the most part, we use packaging and mixed plastics from the yellow bag or yellow bin as input materials (DSD 310 & MKS 352). In addition, we can also process sorting films and mixed commercial films. We define what would generally be called "waste" as a raw material source for high-quality polyethylene-based polymers (PE). We know the necessary ratio between the different input materials in order to adapt the product result to our customers' needs already at the raw material selection stage.
