Erntekunststoffe Recycling Deutschland - ERDE

ERDE is a unique recovery concept for crop plastics in Europe. Large quantities of silage stretch films, silage sheets, underlayer films, bale nets and other plastic products are used in agriculture. These products must not be allowed to burden the environment after their use, particularly in such a nature-oriented sector. In order to support sustainable agriculture and conserve resources, members of IK Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen e.V. have together taken the initiative to protect the environment. Participating manufacturers are: ape Europe, ASPLA S.A., Groupe Barbier, bpi agriculture, CLAAS Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH, Cordex - Companhia Industrial Textil S.A., Coveris Flexibles Austria GmbH, Daios Plastics S.A., DUOPLAST AG, KARATZIS S.A., Manuli Stretch Deutschland GmbH, NOVATEX, Plastika Kritis S.A., POLIFILM Extrusion GmbH, Ab Rani Plast Oy, Reyenvas S.A., RKW Agri GmbH & Co. KG, Sotrafa S.A., TAMA Group, TRIOPLAST GmbH and WKI Tegafol Sp. z o.o..

Shared responsibility

In ERDE, all members involved in the process play an active role.

  • Every manufacturer or original distributor of films that supplies the German market can become a member of ERDE.
  • Every supply agency and farmer that uses the products can dispose of their used crop plastics at an ERDE collection point.
  • Every company that collects plastics integrated in ERDE can become an ERDE collection point.

ERDE Recycling - Together for the environment

Everyone assumes responsibility so that used films can become raw materials!
