Innovative, effective solutions for retrieving plastics from waste

The worldwide demand for recycling of used plastics is growing rapidly as more and more applications are being introduced for the increasing demands and encouragements to use recycled plastics on the way of creating a truly circular economy. As for the Netherlands, the country aims to develop a circular economy by 2050 – a waste-free economy that runs as much as possible on sustainable and renewable materials. This will have a considerable impact on conserving natural resources, reducing dependence on landfill and protecting the environment from plastic pollution.

At the same moment, recycling companies contemplating in investing in plastics sorting equipment will expect to find their return in investments to be of a profitable venture.
