- Recovery systems
for used plastic packaging free of remnants of non-hazardous products.
For fillers and distributors of non-hazardous products, which conclude a trademark user contract (licence agreement) with RIGK, we assume the return and recovery of the plastic packaging. For this, the packaging must be labelled with the RIGK trademark and an allocated trademark user number.
The RIGK trademark signals to commercial and industrial final users the possibility to return packaging free of remnants to a RIGK collection point Germany-wide free of charge.
Through the RIGK-SYSTEM plastic packaging of non-hazardous products which have a plastic content of more than 50 % is recovered. The products may not be classified either under the law on hazardous substances and/or the law on dangerous goods and/or on the GHS. The packaging may not bear any hazard symbols and warnings.
Category 1: inorganic compounds with alkali reaction
Category 2: inorganic compounds with acidic reaction
Category 3: inorganic inert compounds
Category 4: organic compounds which do not react with each other
Category 5: organic polymer compounds
Category 6: PVC
Category 7: Soot
Category 8: Paint pigments
Category S: Foodstuffs and fodder, peat and earthen products, wood dust etc.
Respective of the degree of pollution and the purity of the kind of materials, the plastic packaging is conveyed to an energy or material recovery. Clean and sorted packaging can be recycled as material. It is crushed, cleaned and finally melted down into new plastic products. Its chemical structure is maintained during this mechanical processing. Re-granulates are developed, from which new plastic products are manufactured in the spraying or blow-moulding process.
The RIGK-SYSTEM must not be confused with the RIGK-G-SYSTEM for plastic packaging of hazardous products. These systems must absolutely be handled separately from each other!
