AT TARPREC WE HAVE A MISSION!
TARPREC is based in Vejle Spinderihallerne, but we work internationally. Our mission is to run an environmentally friendly business where we recycle and up-cycle soft PVC material.
We provide an alternative to incineration and landfill waste!
When PVC is incinerated, hazardous toxins are expelled in the smoke, fortunately, Denmark have highly developed systems in the incineration plants that purge the smoke of most harmful toxins which helps prevent hazardous emissions. However, this costs the country valuable resources, and leaves a high dependence on landfills. Due to this, we at TARPREC have devised an alternative; reusing recycled soft PVC to create new upcycled products. Nevertheless, the Danish EPA estimates that soft PVC’s are still ending up in landfills. This is where we at TARPREC want and can make a difference. We collect used PVC material that has served its original purpose and is either useless for said original purpose, stopping them from ending up in incineration plants and landfills.
In 2014 the municipality of Vejle decided to revitalise the Spinderihallerne and make it buzz with life again by turning it into a creative growth centre. The municipality hopes this will create a tangible link between the city’s past, present and future. We are proud to be an integral part of this environment and look forward to putting Vejle on the map on both the national and international stages. Spinderihallerne
