Raw materials at a glance: Mosca supports circular economy through cooperation with Interzero

Sustainable action thrives on robust partnerships across the value chain

Mosca GmbH relies on Interzero’s efficient recycling of PET and PP strapping to minimize the need for new material in their strapping production. In the future, the company based in Waldbrunn will track the status of recycled source materials using Interzero’s ‘Materialkonto’ (material account).

At first glance, the lifespan of packaging materials may appear to be brief: after being used, they are disposed of and replaced with new ones. As the sustainable use of commodities becomes more important, recycling is gaining in popularity. Reprocessed packaging material remains in the value chain. This also applies for strapping: its base materials – mainly PET and PP – are highly recyclable. “As a company that operates sustainably, we prioritize the responsible use of primary resources and the systematic recycling of PET and PP materials,” emphasizes Simone Mosca, Managing Director of Mosca GmbH. This does not only make the company less dependent on volatile commodity markets but also enables controlled production of vital strapping in high quality.

Mosca has been collaborating with Interzero to reach these targets. “Sustainable action thrives on robust partnerships across the value chain, supporting us in implementing an effective circular economy,” says Ann Mertens, Sustainability Officer at Mosca. In addition to recycling, Interzero is responsible for Mosca’s upstream and downstream logistics in the long term: used strapping from end customers will be collected and the shredded or recycled material will be returned to the Waldbrunn-based company. Transparency regarding the recycling process and the available quantities of PET and PP are crucial for Mosca. “Through our ‘Materialkonto’, we provide our partners with a digital twin of their raw materials and circular management. This tool enables them to track the status of recycled materials at any time, strategically secure access to raw materials, and thereby close the loop,” emphasizes Britta von Selchow, Head of Sales Circular Solutions at Interzero.

The ‘Materialkonto’ tracks the amount of PET and PP that has been collected for recycling, is currently undergoing recycling, or is available for reuse. Just like a bank account, the digital platform shows the amount of “credit” Mosca has available for producing new strapping.
