MKV Kunststoffgranulate is a family-owned company specialised in the mechanical recycling of plastics. Founded in 1960 as a family business and still in family hands, since day one we have promoted the establishment and development of the circular economy.
We focus on the recycling of all kinds of engineering plastics. Due to their special characteristics and longevity, engineered plastics are an important part of everyday products such as machines or cars. Their full potential however only comes to light when we keep these resources in the loop and feed them back into manufacturing processes.
We endeavour to make maximum use of engineering plastics so that resources are used effectively and the environmental impact is minimised.
In our location near Limburg, we pursue the goal of CO2-neutrality. Since 2021 we have generated our own green electricity via a photovoltaic system. We also continuously strive to optimise our energy efficiency, measuring and monitoring it regularly to allow better control. Technically more advanced machinery or a switch to LED-lights within the entire company are examples of better energy efficiency, thus supporting sustainability.
3 good reasons to work with us
We are convinced that quality recyclates are the key for a greener future. Reduced CO2-footprint, high quality and lower costs for resources are compatible and a win for your company and the planet. Every single one of our employees works towards that goal.
For a greener future!
The life cycle assessment of our recyclates make a valuable contribution towards a greener future.
Did you know that by using recyclates you can save up to 6kg of CO2 per kilogram of material?
„Recycling makes cents!“
According to a calculation by the World Economic Forums a global transition to a Circular Economy can generate savings of over 1 trillion USDollar per annum (Source). We help you identify cost savings by making use of your own resources, e.g. sprues or scrap parts.
