saperatec GmbH is an innovative recycling technology and solutions provider. Composite packaging materials enable many high performance applications for our modern society. However their recovery for a sustainable, circular economy is often a challenge. Saperatec separates these and other types of composite materials to recover clean material fractions for reuse. For 2022 we plan our first commercial recycling plant turning 17.000 tons of composite packaging waste per year back into high value polymers and aluminium. Saperatec is based in Germany with sites in Bielefeld and Dessau.
