"The EU Plastics Strategy requires the replacement of virgin plastics with recycled materials. This goal cannot be achieved through the recycling of PET bottles alone. The Newcycling® technology has what it takes to close this gap."
Trendsetting technologies from Merseburg: We conceptualize and develop new recycling processes.
Plastic waste is one of the biggest problems of our time. Globally, almost 80 million tons of plastic packaging waste is generated every year. Currently, only about ten percent of the resources are recovered through recycling. The rest is incinerated, landfilled or released leaks into the environment in an uncontrolled manner. The need for a real circular economy is becoming increasingly. Today’s conventional recycling processes are at their limits. Innovations in recycling are essential for a sustainable future. With the Newcycling® process, APK AG is contributing to meeting sustainability targets and recycling quotas.
Using a special solvent process, individual types of polymers in mixed plastic waste streams are separated. The result is pure, clean plastic granulates that are virgin like.
With high-quality granulates back into flexible packaging or technical injection molding parts? No problem, with our newcycled Mersamid® and Mersalen®.
We are an innovative industrial company, a leader in the field of innovative recycling technologies for the production of plastics that are virgin like from mixed plastic waste streams.

The expansion of our production plant in Merseburg to include Newcycling® for the pure processing of multi-layer packaging film waste from production sources with an investment volume of EUR 18.1 million is funded to the amount of EUR 3.6 million by a grant from Investitionsbank Sachsen-Anhalt as part of the joint scheme for "Improving Regional Economic Structures (GRW)" and should be completed by the end of 2018.
The expansion of APK’s solvent-based recycling is to include further waste streams and process assessment/optimization with respect to food standard for Newcycling® products. With the help of the funding, an important contribution is to be made to the development of the circular economy of plastics. The measure is a grant from the "Innovation Assistance" program for the project period from October 2018 to September 2020.
