Waste management and recycling of recovered paper
AP-Concept GmbH & Co. KG is accredited by Bundesverband Sekundärrohstoffe und Entsorgung e.V. (bvse) as a certified waste management facility, in accordance with section 56, paragraphs 2 – 4 of the Law on Closed Cycle Management and Waste (KrWG), and is an authorised intermediary for the transferral of waste products.
Strategy and philosophy
Our business approach and corporate philosophy focus on creating integrated processes for waste management and the targeted recycling of recovered paper – primarily in paper mills in Germany.
We work with recovered paper sourced from the public sector as well as from industries and businesses. Most of our materials come from Germany or from paper collection points in neighbouring European countries.
AP-Concept UK Ltd. is responsible for operations in the United Kingdom.
Thanks to our shareholder structure, we are able to offer nationwide solutions for all recovered paper and paper recycling processes (technology, equipment, logistics, processing, material flow management, pricing), in both the private and the public sector. Few companies in Germany offer comparable services in combination with such a wide portfolio of paper recycling companies as does AP-Concept GmbH & Co. KG.
We will be delighted to help you find a cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly solution. Please use our contact form for your enquiry.
Value creation on behalf of our customers
Our company in figures
There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to sustainable paper recycling strategies. Nor is there a universally accepted definition for the word "sustainable". The approach taken by AP-Concept GmbH & Co. KG is based on the realisation that a system is only sustainable in the long term if it takes every aspect of the cycle into account.
Upcycling and downcycling
Working in the closed loop recycling industry, we include "upcycling" and "downcycling" options for recovered paper in our environmental considerations.
If you would like to develop a comprehensive sustainability strategy and paper recycling cycle for your recovered paper, then please contact us.
Since 2001, the focus of our business activities for disposing of, treating and recycling recovered paper has been on handling material flows efficiently and optimising value chains to make them as resource-friendly as possible.
