PDR - Products via recycling
PDR is the specialist for material recycling of used products and production residues. With innovative technologies and intelligent services, we aim for an optimum material recycling. Together with our customers, we return the recovered products to the production cycle in a resource-saving manner. This enables us to provide our customers with a cicular economy.
PDR Recycling GmbH + Co KG is known for an environmentally friendly recycling solution for PU foam cans. This solution is available to all distributors of PU foam cans in Germany.
Together with external partners, PDR developed the optimal process. In this process, we recycle not only the packaging of the can, but also the residual contents. The recovered PU prepolymer is mixed back into the production of new foams, for example. We achieve a recycling rate of 95%, the material recycling rate is around 80%. An independent testing institute certified PDR as having a very good eco-balance compared to conventional recycling.
PDR's commitment was not limited purely to the technical process. To make it easier for customers to return the cans, PDR built up a sophisticated logistics network for this industry solution. The PDR logistics team plans ecologically and economically balanced tours throughout Germany. Our own service centre takes care of order processing as well as acquisition and educational work.
In order to meet the needs of all customers, PDR offers two ways for can return depending on the quantity of cans. From 6 boxes upwards, our logistics partners pick up directly on site free of charge. Small quantities and single cans are returned by the customer via retailers or local authorities. The postcode search on the homepage shows the nearest return points. Around 3,000 official return points are now registered. Customer friendliness is particularly important to PDR. That is why we recommend our convenient customer login "My PDR pick-up service".
To ensure that our customers are well informed about the recycling of PU foam cans, PDR has developed its own digital learning tools: an e-learning for trade employees and one especially for professionals. They are based on short explanatory videos. These are followed by a few questions in quiz form to convey the most important contents. A personalised certificate rounds off the e-learning and also serves as proof.
PDR supports the trade in particular with an extensive, free offer. They can obtain analogue and digital promotional material - divided into DIY, specialised and online trade - free of charge via the homepage.
Four newsletters per year report on news from PDR and PU foam can recycling.
The industry solution for used building foam cans is not the only business field of PDR: Since 2002, PDR has been an EMEA partner of Hewlett Packard. The only recycling plant for HP printer cartridges in Europe is located in Thurnau., in whichPDR executes over the recycling of the cartridges.
In addition, PDR is seeking further partnerships for innovative recycling solutions of used products or production residues. PDR also provides support in setting up a collection system and a logistics solution. This is because we not only have 30 years of experience in PU chemistry, but also in small parts logistics, in handling hazardous goods and problematic waste, as well as in cross-border waste shipments.
