80% CO2 reduction with the new plastic recycling process
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.
February 2021Packaging underestimated marketing tool
Recent insight research shows:
Packaging with a clear sustainable look and message is a win-win for the producer, environment, and customers.
60 % would change the brand.
75% is willing to pay more.
80% found this interesting.
Umincorp produces recycled plastics from packaging that is so pure, that they can become packaging again.
We produce r-PP, r-HDPE,and r-PET at our facility Plastic Recycling Amsterdam.

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."
Design for Recycled Content Guide
All parties involved in the plastic packaging value chain are lacking fundamental and accurate knowledge about design for recycling.
In the design fase 80% of all life cycle costs are determined!

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.
