TeraPlast recycling collects recycled waste from Romania and other EU countries. These include Holland, Italy, Germany or Finland. We collect: joinery profiles, technical profiles, post-consumer and post-industrial waste, PVC pipes and fittings.
Recycle with TeraPlast Recycling
By using state-of-the-art technology, TeraPlast can process both post-consumer and post-industrial waste, using the same recycling line. Additionally, due to the line’s versatility, we can use different types of products as waste sources: pipes, joinery profiles, fittings, etc.
We have the required know-how and are always looking to improve ourselves and to create our own recipes, for better materials.
Our recycling line has been created as a support for production. Materials obtained from recycling are used in the production of pipes, technical PVC profiles and others. They can also be sold to other PVC processors. TeraPlast Recycling collects waste from Romania and other EU countries, such as Holland, Italy, Germany or Finland. The company occupies first place in Romania and is among the top 10 largest recyclers of rigid PVC in Europe, with a processing capacity of about 12.000 tonnes per year.
Why recycle with TeraPlast Recycling
PVC is a thermoplastic material obtained through the polymerization of vinyl chloride. It is used in numerous fields, as PVC products require low maintenance during use, being extremely durable and having a lifespan of over 60 years. Unfortunately, the qualities which make PVC such a useful material can also cause harm to the environment.
Because PVC decomposes slowly in nature, recycling it becomes an essential process as we try to save the environment. However, recycling PVC also offers numerous other advantages.
PVC products can be recycled easily, when they reach the end of their life, as they can be used in several more cycles. In fact, PVC can be repeatedly recycled for up to 8 times, without losing any of its properties. And this is not all. Another unique advantage offered by this material is the fact that its chemical composition can be changed, enhancing the finished product, without decreasing performance levels.
Recycling PVC means helping out a circular economy and saving resources, in a more durable system.
