What are recyclates?

Secondary raw materials that can be used to make high-quality new products Our basic idea – and primary aim – is to convert plastic waste back into the products it once was. We recycle around 28 000 tonnes of polyethylene waste every year, transforming it into high-quality recyclates. Recyclates are recycled plastics from post-consumer waste – plastics that have been disposed of with household or commercial waste at least once after being used. Secondary raw materials, or recyclates, are produced in a multi-stage production process. Recyclates are produced using hot or cold washing, while granules are produced without the washing stage.

In most cases our recyclates can be used to manufacture products the same as or similar to the original products prior to disposal, completing the recycling loop.
