PCR – Post Consumer Recycling
Over 70% of our raw materials come from PCR. In this process, household and commercial waste (e.g. shopping bags and packaging) is collected, sorted, cleaned, and processed into granulate by waste management companies. We then process this “plastic waste” further here in our factory into new products for the construction and packaging industries. And these products are also 100% recyclable and can be returned to the material cycle!
So: by disposing of them correctly, you are helping to protect the environment!
PIR – Post Industrial Recycling
Misprints or incorrectly produced goods can lead to waste that cannot be reused by the manufacturer. These waste materials come to us via the PIR cycle. Our own production waste and scrap is also collected and returned to the production process via our in-house regeneration plant.
Prime / 1a / NT
This group of raw materials is already created during the production of the PE raw material. Here it gets a bit technical: For example, there is PE with different flow behaviour which is typified according to the so-called melt index. When switching from one melt index to another, up to 15 tonnes of “non-type-compliant” goods can be produced here. This conversion product is therefore the first waste product in the material chain and is used by us for particularly high-quality films.
