A new dimension
For the company from Kematen/Ybbs, participation in this project was not a matter of course, as it represented a completely new dimension. In the top-class consortium, which included big names such as Philips, Whirlpool, the Fraunhofer Institute or universities from Berlin, Gent or Northampton, the company was the only fully integrated recycling company. Even before the start, they were convinced of the importance of this project - now, after the end of the project, even more so, Günther Höggerl confirms: "I found the work on PolyCE to be an ideal platform for us. Together with large companies and organizations from England to Spain, we have pushed forward cooperation in the spirit of the European idea. There was a lot in common in the process and very little that divided us."
