HOW DO WE TAKE PART IN CIRCULAR ECONOMY? TOGETHER.

Ever since REGUPOL was founded in 1954, the company has been involved almost exclusively in recycling elastic raw materials, such as rubber, EVA and PU-foam. With 90,000 tons of recycled elastomers per year, REGUPOL is one of the largest recyclers of such materials in the world. Recycling was the purpose of the company from the outset, even at a time when the term itself was largely unknown, which makes REGUPOL a pioneer in the circular economy. Typically, REGUPOL products consist of between 75-95 % of recycled materials. REGUFOAM is manufactured from genuine raw materials. For some products, additional features are available, such as surface coating, which are also made of primary raw materials. REGUPOL has been certified with DIN EN 14001 continuously since 1997 and will maintain this certification in future.

With a minimum recycling rate of 85 % it is no surprise that all REGUPOL products comply with stringent circular economy regulations in Germany. In 2016 we compiled a CO2 balance for our production site with the help of the energy efficiency agency in North Rhine Westphalia (Germany), in which we showed all our company’s direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions in CO2-equivalents. We save CO2 emissions the equivalent to the emissions from more than 65,000 cars every year by manufacturing products from recycled materials rather than virgin materials.

FROM SINGLE USE TO CIRCULAR ECONOMY

REGUPOL is a member of the "Initiative New Life" and works with the other member companies to ensure an optimal circular economy. Together, the members want to demonstrate the advantages of recycling products from End-Of-Life-Tires (ELT) and motivate to act sustainably.
