The project resulted in several successful initiatives that made it possible to recycle waste into new raw materials, thus creating added value. Today, in addition to cardboard, plastic wrap – sorted according to whether it is transparent or colored – is pressed into rolls directly on site. This makes it better to transport and easier for recycling companies to market it. All things considered, this represents a profit of more than €130,000 annually. In the plant, wastewater containing nickel is evaporated to a lower volume, which not only reduces the transport costs, but also lowers emissions. After all, fewer truck trips mean fewer emissions. Punching coils demonstrate that packaging recyclable materials can considerably influence the price. It consists of many meters of long, sharp-edged metal strips from which metal parts are punched. Due to their length, punching coils can be difficult to work with. However, the resale value of this pure production waste rises if the coils are rolled up into manageable rolls bound together using stainless steel strips.
