Another focus will be on the company’s possibilities to develop individual recovery and recycling solutions, both at national and international level.

Strengthening cooperation

“Circular economy needs cooperation” is the motto RIGK will use on their stand no 316 in Hall A6 to initiate and promote interdisciplinary projects with the aim of jointly finding solutions to encourage recycling. The wide variety of possibilities that open up for this will also be shown by a number of other co-exhibitors, namely the company’s Romanian subsidiary RIGK SRL, the recycling company Sintac – RIGK’s partner in Spain, the industry network and RIGK affiliate plastship, and the industry-specific recovery systems GVÖ (Gebinde-Verwertungsgesellschaft der Mineralölwirtschaft mbH) and KBS (Kreislaufsystem Blechverpackungen Stahl GmbH).

Advice on the amendment to the packaging legislation

At IFAT, these companies will give advice about the various ways in which producers can assume responsibility for the entire life cycle of their products, including the recovery and reuse/recycling, not only to satisfy their own demands but also to comply with the present and expected legal requirements. Especially regarding the amendment of the German packaging act (VerpackG), RIGK will demonstrate how participation in the EPR systems makes it easier to meet the additional obligations when handling industrial packaging, transport packaging and secondary packaging. RIGK will inform trade fair visitors about the latest developments, explain the new rules and regulations, and provide advice on their implementation.

30 years in the service of the circular economy

In 2022, RIGK marked 30 years of commitment to the safe and legally compliant recycling of packaging and plastics in the interests of sustainability and resource conservation. With its recovery systems, RIGK makes a valuable contribution in the battle against climate change. The spectrum ranges from packaging and plastics from industry, agriculture, and commerce to the recovery of unusable crop protection agents and chemicals in the agricultural sector.
