Interview with Stefan Wissing and Uwe Wagner, Managing Director at Pallmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG

The EU wants to enforce circular economy for plastics and stipulates recycling quotas. Do you think a quota of 30 per cent is realistic?

Good recyclates are often more expensive than virgin material due to recycling costs. Will they still be used?

Should collection systems be further improved?

Do you think it feasible to separate composite materials in future?

Wouldn't these parts lose their stability, a property which people particularly appreciate?

Could CFK recycling become a new application at Pallmann sooner or later, leading to additional business?

In some Asian countries, environmental awareness is rising and circular economy is being discussed as an option. Will this be a business opportunity?
