The recycling of multilayer packaging materials that are used to effectively protect products is a huge challenge for recycling companies. The different materials must first be separated and then individually processed. A closed-loop process is hardly possible with conventional recycling methods.
Our patented CreaSolv® Process enables both post-consumer packaging and post-industrial waste to be recycled in a closed-loop process. The process can be customized for the particular composition of the waste materials. It dissolves the target polymers as mono-materials from the mixed plastics or composites and processes these into high-quality regranulates. These can then be used, for example, for the manufacture of new packaging materials. Recycling quotas for composite packaging and multilayer films can thus be significantly increased.
A number of plants designed to use the CreaSolv® Process are under construction. The first operational plant was commissioned in 2018 by Unilever in Indonesia. It recycles three metric tons of material a day. We provide on-site expertise at all sites that commission this novel and advanced recycling technology.
CreaSolv® Technology offers an environmentally-friendly and sustainable end-of-life process for the recycling of packaging materials.
