Elsenfeld/Germany and Marcq-en-Barœul/France, February 2024 -- As part of its increased commitment in Europe, Krall Kunststoff-Recycling has signed a disposal contract with distributor Sunclear, a leading supplier of semi-finished products such as sheets, multiwall sheets, corrugated sheets, tubes and profiles made of plastic, aluminium and composites in France. As part of this agreement, Krall is responsible for disposing of the recyclable materials generated during cutting or processing as waste at all 16 French branches of Sunclear and their customers. Krall supplies these collection points with its customized pallet cages, which are then filled and transported back to its own company.

The approximately 250 tons of plastic waste generated by Sunclear each year consist mainly of PC and PMMA, polyolefins (PP and PE), styrenics, PET and PVC, as well as engineering plastics and composites with aluminium. Krall processes the plastics into single-origin regrind, which can then be used as a direct substitute for virgin material in many applications as part of the recycling loop, saving considerable amounts of CO2 in the process.

Louis Krall, authorized signatory: "Sunclear attaches great importance to the integration of recycled raw materials and the search for environmentally friendly processes. Our modern technology of pure separation and processing using a high proportion of solar energy fits in perfectly with these objectives. For us, this partnership means a considerable strengthening of our presence in France. Discussions with their Italian subsidiary and with Sunclear's customers suggest that we will continue to expand our activities in Europe. We are thus underlining our claim to be a top international address for the disposal and reprocessing of recyclable materials that were previously used in architecture, transportation, interior design and advertising, for example."

Krall Kunststoff-Recycling GmbH Krall Kunststoff-Recycling GmbH is a family-run company founded at the beginning of 1992 in Elsenfeld am Main, which accepts plastic waste and then separates and grinds it to return it to the material cycle. The focus is on transparent plastics such as polycarbonate and PMMA. Other key areas are technical plastics and the recycling of CDs. The company, which consistently relies on solar power, is currently spread over six halls with a usable area of 12,000 square meters. With around 40 employees, two shredders and 10 granulators, the company achieves an annual throughput of around 8,000 tons of plastic.

SUNCLEAR is a French leader in the distribution of plastic sheets, aluminium sheets and composite materials. Integrated into the French industrial group ARAMIS since 2015, SUNCLEAR currently generates a turnover of more than 300 million euros in France, Spain, and Italy with almost 520 employees.
