Partnerships with the plastics industry also allow smaller recyclers to reduce transportation costs.Plasship helps brand owners use recycled particles from the beginning of a project to its successful implementation.

As Konstantin Humm, the company's managing director, puts it: "the debate about the proper use of plastics has never been more intense, and the eu is very strict about the reuse of plastics.As a result, the use of recycled materials is becoming increasingly important, which is also a compelling marketing argument."From the outset, this new platform has provided an attractive BBS to plastics manufacturers to meet the growing demand for high-quality recycled materials that meet specific requirements.
