Closed loop

Grafik zum Closed LoopAll too often, compostable, recyclable packaging lands in the waste incinerator, instead of being taken to a closed recycling process or for composting.

We offer customers an innovative composting solution, which is unique in Germany. 

The compostable food packages - disposable plates, cups and many other items - can be “disposed of” together with food waste via a small composting unit from our product range.

Here, they are first finely chopped up by a shredder, so that the bacteria have the maximum possible area of contact for the decomposition process.

Within just a few days, only a small amount of powdery compost remains.

Composting reduces the volume of waste from the share of water in food residues and packaging in the mix by 70 percent.

This solution is particularly suitable for company catering operations, hospitals or old people’s homes, since the opportunities for separating waste are limited here.

The customer has no financial disadvantages, since in most municipalities, the compost can be taken away free of charge in the green compost bin.

Since savings are made on domestic waste, the procurement costs of the composter are offset within less than three years.

Customers who have the opportunity of introducing a deposit system and who have a large sales volume of cold drinks - such as at stadiums, concerts or street festivals - can also arrange for pure PLA or biopolymer cups to be recycled.
