Used PET bottles and other plastic waste can serve the packaging sector and other industries as a valuable resource. It’s only that – currently, at least – this resource is still lying fallow in many areas. In order to bring about a lasting change here, Krones AG, Neutraubling, and Stadler Anlagenbau GmbH have joined forces in a cooperative partnership.
Their shared goal: to harness the advantages of plastics recycling for clients all over the world as simply and profitably as possible, by offering them already-existing, abundantly field-proven solutions in the field of sorting and recycling technology as complete single-sourced turnkey factories. And also by jointly developing new solutions, processes and technologies themed around the sorting and treatment of waste.
By synergising the two companies’ specialist expertise and technologies, Krones and Stadler expect to generate significant impetus for recycling technology and the associated closed-cycle economy. “We want to supply our clients with the very best quality in terms of material available in the sector,” explains Willi Stadler, Managing Director 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. Thus we’re not only progressing our technological and processing capabilities – we’re also once again significantly faster when it comes to handling specific customer projects.”
At the K 2019, which is being held in Düsseldorf from 16 to 23 October, the cooperation partners will be appearing together for the first time. In the Krones pavilion on Stand Number 15.1, contact persons from both companies will be available to answer any questions regarding this alliance.
