Over one billion 
winds up in the
rubbish ever year


… in the form of packaging, drinks cartons, photovoltaic modules
or lithium-ion batteries. They have one thing in common: they are
all composite materials. As composites they usually end up in the
incinerator or landfill. But they comprise several raw materials that
would be very valuable if they were available on their own.
Imagine what it would be like if the technology existed to break
composites down into their individual components and to reclaim
all the raw materials used.
Saperatec

Back to values


Saperatec is the first company with the ability to reclaim all individual raw materials from composite materials, thus making them available for recycling. With a 100% recycling quota, Saperatec enables sustainable raw materials management and an efficient recycling service for users of its technology.

Technology

Separating composite
materials
using
micro-emulsion


Using specially developed micro-emulsions, Saperatec offers a
completely new and unique way of separating composite
materials. These micro-emulsions harness the effect of
surfactants and ensure the separation process in the
appropriate plant technology. The result is reusable individual
materials and thus 100% recycling of the composite material.

Benefit

Up to 100%
added value


The micro-emulsion breaks down the composite material into
its various components without losing or transforming any of
the materials. As these components can then be fed back into
the raw materials cycle, the best possible added value is
achieved. Following the motto: 100% materials in
– 100% materials out.

fibres for paper manufacturing
Plastic
Clear PE films suitable for reuse
