Realised recycling management

revolPET closes the raw material cycle for PET plastics on a new level

revolPET® is a research and development project based on the model of nature: everything is recycled, everything is the beginning of something new. The chemical recycling process for PET plastics is intended to produce the basic monomers for the production of new PET. From old to new.
