Why separate PMD?

We believe in a future where 0% residual waste will be the norm. After all, waste is a valuable raw material. Together with you we want to save as much waste from being burnt as possible. PMD is one of the waste streams which we can easily separate and make new products from.

What happens with my PMD?

Approximately 80-90% of separated PMD is recycled into new materials, products or packaging. What’s left over are plastics which unfortunately cannot yet be recycled. 

The plastic, metal packaging and drink cartons are separated at the location of the processor. Parts of metal packaging are used as a material for the metal industry, for cans or bicycle parts. Drink cartons are made of laminated cardboard. The cardboard is separated from the plastic coating. The cardboard is reused by the paper industry and the plastic coating for new plastic packaging. Other plastic packaging is separated – from the low-value plastic agglomerate is used and from the high-value material plastic granules, both can be used for new products. 10% of plastic is not recyclable at present.
