ENGEL supports the work of the environmental protection organization Plastic Bank in Indonesia.

“As a member of the plastics industry, we have a great responsibility, a Circular economy for plasticsto build up. We are therefore strongly committed to this goal, ”emphasizes Dr. Stefan Engleder, CEO of the ENGEL Group with headquarters in Schwertberg, Austria, and makes it clear: “Both technologies and the commitment and cooperation of market players on an international level are required. That is exactly why we support the work of organizations like Plastic Bank. The model convinced us. It is based on an incentive system that shows that business and climate protection can go hand in hand. The local population benefits from this. "

Promote the development of recycling capacities
Indonesia is one of the world's largest producers of plastic waste and is therefore a focus region for Plastic Bank. In the absence of a functioning waste management system, large amounts of waste are still disposed of in the sea in many developing countries. In these regions, Plastic Bank, based in Vancouver, Canada, is building recycling chains for plastic waste. For this purpose, the plastic waste is bought from private collectors, processed and then sold to manufacturing companies in the form of granules. With this concept, the organization tackles several challenges. The entry of plastic waste into the sea is reduced, the development of recycling capacities is promoted and poverty is combated in the population.

Use recycled plastic waste more widely
With its social commitment and its technological innovation strength in equal measure, ENGEL is one of the strong drivers of the circular economy. This topic has been a focus of research and development at ENGEL for many years. Among other things, it is about opening up a wider range of uses for processed plastic waste, for example byintelligent assistance systemsCompensate for fluctuations in the raw material by continuously adapting process parameters. "Digitization is an important pioneer for the circular economy," says Engleder.
