Packaging waste disposal and recycling

Our products

Product category: Packaging waste disposal and recycling


To take advantage for your benefit of the opportunities that exist in the recycling of plastics-containing waste and in the minimisation of risks, we first have to create the necessary fact basis. Our claim is to analyse, with specific reference to your problem, the complex relationships that emanate from the interdependent determining factors of legal framework, markets and technology, and to help develop optimum solutions.

Analysis & assessment
We analyse and assess markets and technologies for you in connection with the recycling of plastics-containing waste. Depending on the specific problem, this may involve identifying and characterising relevant waste streams, (potential) processes for waste treatment, processes for material recycling (plastics recycling but also e.g. waste pyrolysis and classification) or energy recovery (e.g. substitute fuels), and the disposal of sorted fractions.

Research & evaluation
We research and evaluate for you developments at European and national level in the legal environment and other business-related issues that are connected with the recycling of plastics-containing waste. Depending on the requirements, this could provide the basis e.g. for an "opportunity and impact analysis" and, among other things, for an appraisal of the orientation of relevant groups (stakeholder assessment).

We develop and evaluate with you and for you concepts and strategies in connection with the recycling of plastics-containing waste. Depending on the specific issue, this may take place e.g. with the aim of your company becoming operationally involved in this segment or to prepare the ground for positioning your company or segment with regard to certain politically or publicly relevant matters, and developing suitable communication activities for this.

Networks & dialogue
To support individual projects, we can call on an established network that gives us access to relevant industries and companies, politicians and authorities, universities and non-government organisations. This network is also our basis for offering e.g. knowledge transfer projects in order to promote the exchange of experiences across national borders.

About us

Company details

Visible product stewardship
The BKV makes a valuable contribution to help the German plastics industry fulfil its product responsibility. The BKV represents the entire plastics value chain: Companies, associations and federations working in the fields of plastics production, plastics processing and plastics machinery manufacture.

Expert platform of the plastics industry
The vision is of a competence platform for the plastics industry that stands out above the competition. The BKV sees itself as a strategic building block of the industry. It provides the industry with the data and fact base to serve as an aid for decision-making and discussion on topics of resource efficiency and plastics recycling. For this, the BKV has a wide network of experts with which it cooperates not only on a national basis but increasingly also internationally.

End-of-life topics and plastics recycling
The main task of the BKV is to represent the interests of its stakeholders in the resource efficiency of plastics, with the focus on end-of-life topics. Its particular strength is in the field of recycling, above all – but not only – of plastics packaging. The BKV observes closely how these topics develop in the political environment. Any potentially critical developments for the plastics industry are identified and incorporated into the project work. The BKV thus creates at an early stage a fact basis for the associations and their stakeholders to enable sound and informed discussion.

As plastics industry experts, the BKV deals with environmental matters relevant to plastics. It bases its work on a broad network and supplies the results of the projects to interested parties under equal conditions. It also offers its expertise as a consultant for waste issues to clients outside its own group of stakeholders.
