First place for Repulping Technology at the EUROPEAN PAPER RECYCLING AWARDS 2019 in Brussels:
Dear customers and partners,
the “EUROPEAN PAPER RECYCLING AWARD” is conferred every 2 years by the European Paper Recycling Council (EPRC) in the European Parliament in Brussels. Repulping Technology was rated with the highest scores in the category "Innovative Technologies and R&D" for the development of the "Cavitation pulper".
This award is targeted at projects, initiatives and campaigns that improve the sustainability of Europe in a significant way with their support of the improvement of paper recycling. The jury consists of academics, journalists and members of the European Parliament. Repulping Technology has set itself the task of returning composite materials and paper grades that are considered difficult to recycle back into the recycling loop. Until now these materials have been mainly used for thermal recycling (waste incineration) due to their inadequate separation and recycling.
"The technology we developed is establishing us as a pioneer in the field of innovative recycling ideas. Our customers benefit from a significant increase in the recycling rate of raw materials and energy efficiency in their processes. In order to meet the requirements of the changed legal situation, such as the new packaging law, the industry is well equipped with the new technology," says Ulrich Neumüller, Managing Director of Repulping Technology. A fact that is also confirmed by Jytte Guteland, member of the European Parliament for climate policy: "With the Green Deal, the EU has developed a new ambitious leadership to become the world’s first climate-neutral continent. In order to achieve our EU climate change targets, such innovative technologies are urgently needed. The time is more than ripe for this."
The patented technology "cavitation pulper" is already developed and can be installed in waste-paper mills and recycling plants - a clear proof of concept economical and technical wise exists. "We want to recover every fibre. Every fibre counts!" accented Angelika Christ, Chairwoman of the European Paper Recycling Council. The highly efficient separation of fiber/fiber and fiber/non-fiber material compounds (composite materials) leads to an enormous increase in the recycling rate.
