WHAT ARE CIRCULAR MATERIALS?

Circular Materials are plastics, natural fibers, metals, etc., that have been recovered from their first/prior use-phase. They have been successfully collected, sorted, reprocessed and are ready for the next life-cycle, in a new product.

On a planet with limited resources we have to transform linear into circular material flows.

Our custom-made materials and products made from recycled feedstocks are saving precious resources, energy and CO2 emissions.

Our principles:

  • Re-use what we already have
  • Decrease virgin plastic/material emission
  • Design for recycling
  • Reduce product carbon footprint

See how we help our clients to use waste as a resource.

CASE STUDY

TURNING FASHION WASTE INTO HANGERS

A leading hanger producer challenged us to recycle post-consumer fashion waste into clothes hangers.

Resource: Germany collects more than 150 truck loads of unwanted clothes. Every day! We used the sorted out, non reusable fraction and transformed it into injection moldable Fibre-Pellets.

Circular Material: The Fibre-Pellets are added to the resin at the hanger production site. We replace the virgin polypropylene resin with a post-consumer recycled one.

Application: The industry´s first Circular Hanger! Made out of 100% recycled content. 100% recyclable. At the end-of- life the hangers get collected, reground and injected back into new hangers again.

Recycled Fibre-Pellets for your application

Give obsolet textiles a second life! Instead of lanfilling or incinerating textile waste, our unique technology enables new possibilities of upcycling. Any injection moulded part made from Polyolefines or TPE is suitable for Fibre-Pellet integration. Beside performance improvements and a unique design, a detailed life-cycle assemssment (LCA) verifies many environemntal benfits.
