It starts with properly sorting waste. As part of the “Mülltrennung wirkt” initiative, we educate consumers on how waste sorting affects recycling.
In the case of glass and paper packaging, it’s already possible to close loops — packaging and products are created again from the packaging.
Recycling plastics, however, continues to be a major challenge. At the same time, global plastic production is steadily increasing.
In order to keep plastic packaging in circulation, we rely on two recycling technologies:
Mechanical recycling is the shortest and most ecological recycling loop for simple packaging and mono-materials.
As a complementary technology, chemical recycling can close the loop for complex packaging and mixed plastic waste.
