Part of Galloo
As a separate branch within Galloo, Galloo Plastics specializes in the processing of post-consumer plastic waste. With the introduction of shredder technology in the 70’s and dense medium separation from the early 80’s, Galloo decided to invest the recycling of plastics from various waste fractions. The goal is to give a second life to plastic waste from end-of-life vehicles (ELV) and other consumer goods such as electrical and electronic devices or WEEE.
Launch of the R&D programme
Throughout Galloo’s history, research and development play a prominent role, and this was no different. 1992 marked the start of an intensive research program on the processing of shredder residue.
Creating of Galloo Plastics
Just 5 years later Galloo Plastics was founded. The new processing unit was revolutionary. Plastics from the shredder residue from ELV and WEEE but also from household waste are since then recycled on an industrial scale.
According to a prefectoral decree, Galloo Plastics can recycle up to 90,000 tonnes of plastic per year.
