When a waste collection company, a plastics film producer and a group of determined Kosovar entrepreneurs join forces, there begins a unique collaboration that creates solutions to a number of different challenges that we face in the world of recycling and plastics production today.
Over 1.5 million metric tons of plastic waste was previously exported by Europe to China. Since China’s import ban, the biggest part of these volumes are still waiting for a useful new life. The current alternative is now often incineration.
At the same time, plastics producers, brand owners, wholesalers and retailers in Europe are waiting in line to get stable quality regranulate that can be used in the wide variety of applications.
Starting with LDPE flexible plastics, REKS brings together supply, production and demand, creating closed loops and avoiding unnecessary downcycling.
