The mountains of waste are piling up – and with them the demands on state-of-the-art recycling technology. Because by no means everything that we bring to the recycling yard with the best of intentions can be returned to the material cycle so easily.

Like at the other end of a scale that has been thrown off balance, the waste mountains of civilization are growing – while the availability of natural resources continues to decline. This has consequences for both people and the environment. We currently consume 1.5 times what the world can provide in the long term. And the incineration of waste causes further toxic gases and harmful residues.
Effective waste and recycling solutions are more in demand than ever. But just as important is that we (finally) understand recycling properly – and live it. The latest video documentation from our publishing partner Wired shows both: what recycling myths we should overcome to make recycling more efficient. And how state-of-the-art collection, sorting and recycling technologies help to extract the last grain of raw material from the waste stream. Welcome to the world of “Big Jim”, “Eddy” & Co., which already generates a turnover of 178 million Euros worldwide.
