Products as a raw material depot for the future
Recycling already starts with product design. If products are designed and manufactured using recyclable materials, they can be recycled up to one hundred percent and used as raw material sources for new products made of recycled plastic, for example.
Recycling-friendly design enables loops to be closed, as it leads to homogeneous material flows and a reduced proportion of mixed fractions during waste management. It also improves dismantling, which drives down process costs. This is particularly beneficial because it allows loops to be closed with the company's own products at the end of the product life cycle.
As early as the development and design phase, we advise our customers on how to take products back and design them recyclable based on our recycling and processing expertise. In doing so, our focus is on:
- sourcing recycling and recyclable materials
- minimising the use of materials
- recovery (collection and return of products)
- product longevity
