Securing raw materials for German industry

Future-proof recycling requires clear political framework conditions

The efficient use of recycled raw materials is a decisive competitive factor – especially in a country like Germany, which has limited natural resources. In many areas, the economy is already benefiting from recyclable loops. The recycling of plastic packaging is also making significant progress. With innovative concepts and cutting-edge technologies for the sorting and reconditioning of plastics, Interzero contributes to the continuous improvement of the quality of recycled raw materials and the efficient closing of material loops.

Clear the way for recycled raw materials!

Creating a stable market and bringing recycled raw materials into widespread use requires clear political framework conditions, however. It makes sense to have a defined minimum recycled content for packaging and products, for example. In this area, the state sector should lead the way, and establish “green procurement” as a standard. For the circular economy to succeed in Germany, we require clear, decisive legislation, consistent enforcement and fair competitive conditions for sustainable recycled raw materials.
