WIPAG exhibits together with its sister company ALBIS at this year’s Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE), the leading European trade fair and conference for plastics recycling. On May 10 and 11, 2023, at booth N 13, the recycling company will demonstrate that circular economy is an integral part of the plastics industry and the importance of identifying material streams as new sources of raw materials.
PRSE covers topics across the supply chain, from recycling development, collection, sorting and recycling of industrial, commercial, agricultural, post-consumer and ocean plastic waste, to the development of recycled polymers used in new products and applications.
WIPAG can operate along the entire supply chain, as the focus of its work is on sustainable thermoplastics across all sectors. The main aim here is to initiate materials loops instead of disposing of plastics after the product’s end of life, thus increasing resource consumption. For this purpose, WIPAG identifies material flows and sources of engineering plastics waste from various industries. Using its own recycling technologies – which include process steps such as composite separation and paint removal – WIPAG reprocesses the materials and initiates closed loop solutions for its customers so that the regranulate can be reused in new components, entirely without downcycling.
“We are pleased to be represented at PRSE – as only together we can advance the circular economy and thus tackle the big issues of our time,” explains Jens Kaatze, CEO WIPAG. ” For us, PRSE is a good opportunity to re-think plastics recycling and to exchange ideas about innovations in the industry.”
WIPAG Deutschland GmbH is a specialist in material processing of technical plastic waste, the development of recycling technologies and the production of plastic compounds, including those based on recycled carbon fibers.
With innovative recycling technologies, the company prepares plastic waste streams that are reused as valuable materials in the products of the processing industries. The lightweight compound WIC, which is made from secondary carbon fiber, is also part of the WIPAG sustainable portfolio.
Established in 1991, the company has more than 100 employees at two locations in Germany and has since 2018 been part of the family-owned and globally active Otto Krahn Group.
The company received a Gold rating from the independent rating agency EcoVadis in 2022.
