What kind of waste we collect
- PVC joinery profiles (heads and bars)
- Technical profiles – panelling, blinds and other types of technical profiles (gutter, cable beds, corners, curtain rails, etc.);
- Post-consumption and post industrial waste;
- PVC pipes and fittings.
Teraplast collects recycled waste from Romania, as well as from other EU countries. Among these we specify Holland, Italy, Germany or Finland. We are the largest consumer of PVC recycled materials in our country and the largest recycler of stiff PVC.
Why to recycle
PVC or polyvinyl chloride also known as vinyl, is a thermoplastic material obtained through the polymerization of vinyl chloride. This has numerous uses, PVC products require a low maintenance during their use, being extremely durable and having a life expectancy higher than 60 years.
Unfortunately, the qualities that make PVC a highly appreciated material cause significant damage to the environment. Due to the fact that PVC decomposes very hard, its recycling becomes an essential process in the fight to protect the environment.
However, PVC recycling has numerous benefits besides environmental protection. Due to its unique polymer structure, PVC products are excellent for recycling when they reach the end of their lifetime, being used for several lifecycles. Besides, PVC has the advantage that it can be recycled repeatedly up to 8 times, without any impact on its components.
But this is not all. Another unique advantage of this material is represented by the fact that its formula can be changed, aspect that can lead to the improvement of the final products, without decreasing the level of technical performance.
PVC recycling means supporting a circular economy and conserving the resources in a more sustainable system.
Why to recycle with TeraPlast
Using state-of-the-art technology, TeraPlast can process post-consumption and post-industrial waste using the same recycling line. Furthermore, given the versatility of the processing line, we can use as waste sources numerous types of product from joinery profiles to pipes, fittings, blinds, jambs, panelling or cable beds.
We have the necessary know-how to use recycled materials and we are always looking to develop and to perfect or own recipes in order to increase the use of these materials. Our recycling line was design as support for Teraplast production. The materials obtained from recycling are used in the production of pipes, PVC technical profiles and others. Likewise, the materials obtained from recycling can be sold to other PVC processors.
