Umincorp contributes to 1000 solutions
Solar Impulse foundation has started a mission to select 1000 solutions that address environmental challenges while enabling economic growth.
We are proud to announce that the foundation has reached its goal and our MDS technology is part of the portfolio along with #1000solutions.
We support the efforts of Bertrand Piccard and the Solar Impulse Foundation to accelerate the implementation of solutions that can bring profit to both the economy and environment.

Umincorp’s recycling process results in a 70-80% reduction of the environmental impact compared to the use of virgin plastics.
This is the conclusion of a recent Life-Cycle Analyses (LCA), comparing three solutions: virgin plastics, conventional recycling, and Umincorp’s process.
In the mentioned LCA, the environmental impacts of the Umincorp plastic recycling process have been assessed. A comparison has been drawn with three alternatives; conventional post-consumer plastic recycling processes and the use of virgin plastic polymers.
The recycling process of Umincorp results in an 80-85% reduction of the environmental impact in CO2- equivalent per ton recycled polymer compared to conventional recycling processes. Compared to the use of virgin plastics, Umincorp has a process with a 70-80% reduction.
Umincorp’s plastic recycling process can separate on a flake level thanks to their unique Magnetic Density Separation (MDS). This technology has an accurate separation of a mixed polymer flow. This results in a higher recovery of plastics and in a higher polymer purity of end-products. This reduces costs for plastic recycling.
This LCA shows the Umincorp plastic recycling process has the lowest environmental impact compared to any alternative.

Industrial services provider Bilfinger and recycling tech company Umincorp have signed a letter of intent for a long-term EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) partnership.
In the episode: "Green deal: wens of werkelijkheid?" Jelle Sernee, together with other entrepreneurs, talked to Frans Timmermans about his plan to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2025. The plastics problem is discussed and how Umincorp plays a role in this, but also how legislation plays an important role.
Umincorp will be highlighted from 22:18.

We are officially approved as one of the #1000Solutions of Solar Impulse.
" We need to embrace clean technologies and efficient solutions, because they are much more than ‘ecological’ , they are ‘logical’. They create jobs and generate profit, while also reducing CO2 emissions and preserving natural resources. Even if climate change didn’t exist, they would make sense. Clean growth is much better than the dirty status quo we have today."

Very succesful day for family and friends. More than 150 kids and 250 adults came to see our plastic recycling plant in Amsterdam.
KIJK magazine, edition October 2019 focusses on 'The circle of garbage'. They highlight five Dutch innovative recyclingcompanies, Umincorp is one of them.
De haven van Amsterdam heeft een film gelanceerd over de plastic hub die er aan het ontstaan is. Verschillende innovatieve en circulaire bedrijven in de haven passen de nieuwste technieken toe waarmee steeds meer typen plastic gerecycled kunnen worden. Benieuwd hoe dat gaat? Bekijk de film over de plastic hub. De oplossing van Umincorp wordt vanaf minuut 4:38 uitgebreid belicht.

Dutch Television broadcaster NTR made a Focus documentary to see where our Dutch household plastic waste ends up in the plastic chain and why the Netherlands has still a low recycling percentage. NTR visited Umincorp as we are able to tackle this challenge with our unique Magnetic Density Separation (MDS) Technology. Our MDS technology creates value by recycling mixed plastic streams directly into separated polymer groups with a purity up to 100% in one process step doing 1.5t/hr. The Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic output of our process can be directly used in end products. https://www.npostart.nl/focus/14-11-2018/VPWON_1292630
Nu de Europese Commissie als doel heeft gesteld om in 2030 al het plastic verpakkingsmateriaal te recyclen is er werk aan de winkel. Bijna de helft (40 %) van alle geproduceerde plastic wordt gebruikt in de verpakkingsindustrie. [..]
Urban Mining Corp gebruikt een innovatieve techniek om hoogwaardige grondstoffen uit plastic afval te produceren. Een demo-installatie, waarin magnetische vloeistof verschillende soorten plastic scheidt, draait inmiddels volledig. Er wordt ook hard gewerkt aan een vervolgtechnologie: het op kleur scheiden van plastics.
