World Recycling Day has been celebrated on 18th March every year for the last five years. All over the world, events mark the importance of recycling. The idea is to campaign for the preservation of our natural resources so that we can secure the future of our planet. The East-Frisian company Enneatech AG has long been a champion of sustainability and climate protection. As CEO Hartmut Schoon explains, “we actually come from the recycling industry anyway. Our origins date back 40 years and we live in a region that is 30 kilometres from the coast. If the sea level rises, we’ll be the first to get our feet wet. So, we feel duty bound to make a contribution, both for ourselves and for subsequent generations.”
In our production halls in Großefehn, we process waste products from the textile industry into high-quality, durable plastics. We turn old textile fibres, remains of airbags and synthetic ropes into new products for the automobile and electronics industries.
Most of the world’s plastic waste ends up in landfill or in the environment – only around ten percent is recycled. And this is where ENNEATECH comes in: “We need to do something to reduce carbon emissions and drive forward climate protection”, says Executive Board Member Ralf Akkermann. Everyone can play their part – every company has a responsibility here. ENNEATECH AG is one of the leading recycling companies in northern Germany. We’re a modern plastics producer that continually comes up with innovative ideas and products for a sustainable future.
