The simplest definition of recycling states that it is recycling when resources and materials that would otherwise be discarded come back into circulation. But the question of recycling and the answer to this is far more complex. Waste handling and treatment in itself is an extremely complicated process that consists of several phases and can take place with many different methods.
Regardless of the different forms of recycling, you can generally say; that it is a process that aims to produce a new product through the efficient utilization of previously used materials that would otherwise be deposited.
Below, we will describe in more detail which steps our process typically includes when we have to help companies recycle.
When products have served their purpose, they are often sent for incineration or landfill. However, this is neither appropriate for our nature nor for us as humans. We believe that product responsibility should lie with the companies and not the consumers. It is the company that created and produced the product and it is also their responsibility to solve the product’s EOL (End of Life). However, this can be difficult for many companies, as the products are often created to have a linear life rather than a circular one. The circular method is of course preferable, which is why the EU also provides support for the circular method of progress.
Over the last 8 years, TARPREC has specialized in developing processes for companies that do away with the linear culture in favor of a circular culture of products. Therefore, we focus on developing processes for products that would otherwise be deposited.
The processes have two purposes; either they aim to give the expired product new life, as new products. Or, to break down the raw materials again so that they can become part of a circular circuit.
