Used PET bottles and other plastic waste can be a valuable resource for the packaging sector and other industries. However, currently this resource remains unused in many areas. In order to bring about a lasting change, Krones AG, Neutraubling, and Stadler Anlagenbau GmbH have joined forces in a partnership.
Their common goal is to harness the advantages of plastics recycling for customers around the world to benefit as simply and profitably as possible. On the one hand, by offering their existing, tried-and-tested solutions in the field of sorting and recycling technology as complete single-sourced turnkey plants. On the other hand, through the joint development of new solutions, processes and technologies relating to the sorting and treatment of waste.
By combining the two companies’ specialist expertise and technologies, Krones and Stadler expect to generate significant momentum for recycling technology and the associated circular economy. “We want to provide our customers with the highest quality material output in the industry,” explains Willi Stadler, CEO of Stadler Anlagenbau GmbH. Christian Fisch, who as Head of Plants at Krones AG is responsible for the alliance, adds: “This collaboration enables us to reduce and improve interfaces. This not only drives our technology and processes forward, but also makes us much faster in the execution of specific customer projects.”
