Newcycling® - An economic and ecological recycling technology for a real circular economy for plastics.
Our solvent-based Newcycling® technology enables us to produce, pure granulates with properties similar to virgin plastics from complex waste streams, e.g. mixed plastic waste and multi-layer packaging, whereby the process is economically and ecologically efficient.
In comparison to chemical recycling, the plastic is retained and does not have to be repolymerized using energy and cost-intensive processes.
In general mechanical recycling processes are able to produce only regranulates of a quality that is only suitable for downcycling applications.

Learn in our video why innovative recycling processes will become more and more important in the future and how we are contributing to close the loop with Newcycling®.
Industry and politics are setting new sustainability targets and recycling rates. Further development of the existing technologies is essential. APK is setting new quality standards in the area of solvent-based recycling with its innovative Newcycling® process.
At our Plastics Recycling Innovation Center (PRIC), we are conducting research on the further development of our Newcycling® technology for other fields of application with experts from various disciplines areas at the Merseburg plant.
