Strategy Brain


The right strategy is key in any change process. What materials can be easily substituted to reduce your product carbon footprint? What regulations might effect your todays material choices? Do you need to rethink your product end-of-life scenario?

An analysis of your product and packaging portfolio will provide first insights. A hands-on ecodesign workshop clarifies mandatory guidlines to enable a „design for recycling“ and lowering your „product carbon footprint“.

Within our „Circular Manufacturing“ program, we collaborate with many brands to produce and supply custom Circular Materials or set up a Circular Manufacturing supply chain. We can close the loop using e.g. obsolet/off-spec products or any kind of collected items to produce new ones.

No matter if it´s only several tons or up to hundred tons a month. We take care of the whole Circular Manufacturing process. From design, inital trials, tool making, serial production till calculating ecological and economical benefits. Reliable and on time.
