We care about resources
Stena Recycling offers customized services and comprehensive solutions in recycling and efficient resource management. With nearly 90 facilities in Sweden, the company creates value for its customers and society as a whole and contributes to the increased recycling and reuse of materials and products.
Stena Recycling collects materials and products from over 70 000 customers in many different industries. The company recycles material such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, electronics, plastic, paper and mixed waste. Steel industries, paper mills and other customers buy the recycled raw material for use in the manufacture of new products.
Stena Nordic Recycling Center, one of Europe’s most modern recycling facilities, forms a hub for the company’s industrial recycling infrastructure. It represents a major step forward in efficient resource management and offers significant benefits to customers and the environment. It has increased material recycling and produces recycled raw materials of high, consistent quality. The facility has led to an overall reduction in waste and the amount of material sent to landfill sites.
With the market for recycled plastic set to expand, Stena Recycling is investing in the development of new processes at the Stena Nordic Recycling Center, in order to enable the recycling of more types of plastic.

The Draak family, entrepreneurs based in Hamburg/Germany, recognized the enormous potential of plastics recycling in the late 1950’s and began to specialize in processing clean manufacturing scrap purchased from plastics converters. Today RSH POLYMERE GmbH is a specialist for recycling and recompounding high-quality polymers and sells in-house manufactured recycle grades and recompounds used in extruded and injection-moulded products for wide-ranging applications in the automotive, construction , consumer goods and packaging industries.
By recycling plastics, RSH verifiably contributes to conservation and protection of finite natural resources today and for generations to come. When recycled, plastic scrap – instead of being incinerated or discarded in nature – is returned to a useful and sustainable utilization cycle.
The process recovers high-quality raw materials for reuse while at the same time avoiding substantial CO2 emissions. This has been proven and confirmed by assessments made in collaboration with an independent technical institute. Our regranulates and compounds replace virgin resins, thereby realizing emission savings of 83 – 93% CO2e as compared to the same weight of virgin stock.
These enormous savings help conserve natural resources and also highlight the importance of recycling on a widespread scale. This trend has been widely recognized by leading consumer goods and automotive manufacturers, many of which specify sustainability as a key criterion for contract awarding to their suppliers.
BPM GmbH is a family-owned, internationally active company with a focus on the disposal and recycling of plastic production residues. We manufacture regrinds and regranulates from pure residual plastics.

Founded in 1993 by Peter Gribbe under the name Bösel Recycling Management GmbH, our company has been managed for more than 15 years by his daughter, the managing partner Stephanie Kötter-Gribbe. She has developed BPM into a producer of high-quality regranulates and a developer of sustainable disposal concepts.

ecoloop is a certification-program for plastic producers, recyclers as well as processors and manufacturers of plastic products.
The ecoloop – certification program contains 3 different modules:
module 1 – extend the loop
Extend loop refers to the use of plastic oil in the production of raw materials for the plastics industry. Fossil oils can be replaced by waste based plastic oils or pyrolysis oils in crackers. By means of a mass balance procedure, the plastic oils used can be assigned to the certified products.
module 2 – open the loop
By open the loop we mean the production of regrinds or regranulates from plastic waste. These material processes are used to produce raw materials for various industrial sectors and thus replace conventional raw materials.
module 3 – close the loop
“Close the loop” refers to the last production step that uses raw materials or products from modules 1 or 2 to manufacture its products (components) for the end consumer and can thus prove the use of plastic waste-based raw materials.
We are always on the lookout for new, forward-looking opportunities, we love innovation and we are committed to sustainability so that you can benefit from the best service and the best results.
And the environment?
We protect them every day of the year. While others are still thinking about reducing their CO² levels, we have long since left this sector.
What can you expect from our company?
Quite a few things. We offer you a professional 360-degree plastic recycling process, from washing to the production of regrind and granulate. We use our biogas plant for the necessary energy supply and feed electricity into the public grid. We are engaged in agriculture and poultry farming.
We always keep an eye on people, the environment and economic efficiency.
