Plastic is the most frequently processed material in the world. The resulting "plastic waste" is a valuable raw material. By recycling new products can be produced again.

When plastics have reached the end of their useful life, they can be recycled to new products by sorting, cleaning, crushing and processing.

Upper Austria has a long tradition, especially in the field of mechanical engineering for recycling plants but also in the processing of plastics. And there is also a large number of committed and prestigious companies, which rank among market leaders and players worldwide.
