As a gypsum plasterboard or gypsum blocks manufacturer you can benefit from a stable, low cost source of high quality raw materials and further strengthen your environmental profile by co-operating with Gypsum Recycling International.
We guarantee the quality of the supply and will set up the entire recycling program at no cost and involving no investments for you. We take care of everything. The only thing you as a plasterboard manufacturer have to do is to use the recycled gypsum powder.
Win – Win situation
The gypsum industry can leave recycling of gypsum materials to competent operators, who are familiar with waste collection and recycling and who have proved as the first European company that recycling of plasterboard waste is possible.
There are neither costs nor investments required for the industry to have a recycling programme established in their area.
The industry will use the recycled materials and by doing so the industry will take advantage of the following:
- Improved environmental profile and image
- An additional stable source of high quality materials
- Recycled materials at a price below that of virgin materials
A co-operation with Gypsum Recycling International is a win-win situation for the gypsum and plasterboard industry.
Open industry solution
We favour industry solutions, where the established system is open to all gypsum waste in a given area no matter who originally manufactured the product that created the waste. Likewise we will accept the waste of a manufacturer whether or not the same manufacturer is receiving the recycled powder back.
If the recycling system is established as an open industry solution, as described above, the plasterboard manufacturers do not have to worry about the competitive situation between them when it comes to the waste. This is a clear advantage to the manufacturers and it helps to achieve the very high recycling rates, which have been obtained in the Scandinavian countries. We are proud to count the Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch and Belgium Associations of Plasterboard Manufacturers as supporters of our system.
