The Systalen brand stands for high-quality, reliable and individually producible recyclates.
The aim of sustainable operations is to economize on natural resources, to reduce environmental impact, and at the same time to take due account of commercial viability. Particular importance is attached in this context to dealing with plastics as a material, which are used in large quantities, for example, as polypropylene (PP) or low and high-density polyethylene (LDPE/HDPE) for producing packages and consumer goods. So what can be done to satisfy consumers’ needs and product-related expectations, and at the same time to create reduced environmental impact from the production processes?
Der Grüne Punkt’s answer to this is called recycled plastics. With the Systalen recyclate, Der Grüne Punkt is also a producer of plastic granulates, which offer a genuine, eco-friendly alternative to producing new plastics. Systalen can replace new plastics in injection molding, extrusion, and molding processes. Numerous companies and municipalities are putting their trust in high-quality, innovative, and above all affordable solutions featuring Systalen regranulates as materials or with end-products when it comes to building construction, civil engineering, and landscaping, transportation, logistics and packaging technology.
Der Grüne Punkt has set new standards in the utilization of raw materials taken from post-consumer collections. For producing our Systalen recyclate, we use homogenous plastics from the Yellow Sack and the Yellow Bin – always in conformity with clear product specifications and with a view to the end-product involved.
All foreign substances are filtered out of the starting material, and the washed plastic flakes are then melted in the extruder, de-aerated, micro-filtered and with an admixture of additives purposefully processed to make Systalen recyclate. Thanks to underwater granulation, moreover, we are able to produce very fine, easy-to-process plastic granulate.
As an injection-molded plastic for pipes and drainage pipes, for façade cladding, profiles or pallets, and even sustainable cleaning-agent bottles – the options available for using recyclates from Der Grüne Punkt are many and varied, and also suitable for the most sophisticated of applications.
Recycled plastics like Systalen and other recyclates are as secondary raw materials meanwhile suitable for a multitude of production processes. Not least when it comes to manufacturing products made of injection-molded plastic. This is also to the credit of Der Grüne Punkt as a manufacturer of plastic granulates, and of its Systalen recyclate, which makes a fundamental contribution towards rendering plastic granulates suitable for a flexible range of applications, and making it into a genuine replacement for primary raw materials. The advantages of recyclates are indisputably evident:
Their production downsizes environmental impact
Plastic can here be produced without using any crude oil
A closed loop is created by recycling the plastic
Significantly lower energy consumption when manufacturing regranulates than when producing new plastics
Lower CO2 emission values and pollutant emissions
Our wide range of products comprises standard qualities. Depending on the application involved, the manufacturing process for the product concerned and the requirements of our customers, we offer specifically tailored recipes, and are able to supply the Systalen recyclate in different versions, shapes and compositions. And different colors, of course, are not a problem either. After all, a green world has to be multi-hued as well.
Systalen granulates are specifically tailored materials for applications involving injection-molded plastics and extrusion and offer near-infinite options – not least for high-quality applications.
We customize the recipe of our Systalen recyclate to suit you, your product and its needs. Our applications engineering consultancy team will map out the salient considerations for you in detail. Nor do you need to worry in the slightest about availability: adequate quantities of Systalen recyclates are always in stock. Whenever and wherever you want them. Because the plastic granulate manufacturer behind Systalen is and remains Der Grüne Punkt. With all its capabilities, its expertise and its experience.
Systalen recyclates are made at two technically sophisticated facilities, which on request will manufacture your own customized Systalen product.
One crucial quality feature of the superlative recyclates from Der Grüne Punkt is the numerous certifications it possesses. We use a quality and eco-management system in conformity with DIN EN ISO 9001 : 2008 and EN ISO 14001 : 2004 + cor. 1 : 2009. And you benefit quite specifically in terms of your public image from our certification under EUCert, since you can apply for the Blue Angel for products made from Systalen recyclates.
