Joint project of NETAFIM and RIGK for the recycling of drip pipes increases recycling rates and continues to grow

Zusammenarbeit zwischen RIGK und NEFAFIM

As early as 2021, NETAFIM, the leading manufacturer of drip tube systems for agriculture, launched a pilot project together with RIGK to return used drip tubes to the recyclable material stream by taking them back and recycling them. In its second year, the project saw a further increase in recycled volumes, according to the final figures for 2022, with 50 tons of drip tubes collected and recycled in 2022, up from 35 tons in the pilot year. 

Drip irrigation systems can be used in speciality crops such as grapes, fruit, vegetables and hops and in arable crops such as potatoes.
