R-Cycle: Pilot Projects

The practical suitability of R-Cycle is currently tested and verified in several pilot projects which are carried out together with raw material producers, packaging manufacturers, brand owners, wholesalers and retailers. A selection of them we can present to you here publicly.

If your know-how or technology can make a contribution to R-Cycle, or if you have suggestions for R-Cycle pilot projects, we will be delighted to hear from you.
