The right strategy is key in any change process. What materials can be easily substituted? What regulations might effect our todays material choice? Do we need to rethink our end-of-life scenario?
An analysis of your product portfolio/packaging will provide first insights and results. A hands-on ecodesign workshop clarifies mandatory guidlines to enable a „design for recycling“ and provides an overall understanding how the circular ecocnomy impacts your brand and industry.

SUPPLY OF CIRCULAR MATERIALS / CIRCULAR MANUFACTURING
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 till calculating ecological and economical benefits. Reliable and on time.
