Sustainability Today is proud to announce that Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions has been selected as our Recycling Solutions Company of the Month, for its outstanding range of recycling technology which is helping to drive the green agenda.
Bollegraaf was established in 1961. After producing vertical balers, which became renowned for their high quality, Bollegraaf began developing its technology with sustainability in mind. The range quickly grew from vertical, via semi-automatic to its current fully automatic baler with a pre-press flap. The concept quickly took hold, leading to Bollegraaf growing from a small Dutch business into a multinational company, and it is now a global player in recycling and waste processing equipment.
“We design and build high quality recycling solutions for any kind of waste,” explained Leendert Rijneveld, Marketing Manager. “We work closely with our customers to design a solution to best suit their needs, so everything is made bespoke for each individual company. We’re a well-known recycling partner and have a proven track record across the world for delivering high quality solutions. We always receive great feedback from our customers, who pass on their recommendations to others, so we have a loyal customer base and see a lot of organic growth thanks to this.”
Since its inception nearly 60 years ago, Bollegraaf has expanded its product range significantly, and it now includes complete sorting installations and recycling products that are developed by the company’s in house team of designers and engineers. These leading solutions are ideal for the processing of wastepaper, plastics and a vast range of commercial & industrial and domestic waste. In addition to this, Bollegraaf supplies single products and components, including conveyor belts, sorting belts, magnetic and pneumatic sorting systems, drums and screens for sorting installations.
All of Bollegraaf’s equipment is created with the goal to optimise economic value with the lowest possible costs per tonne, helping to ensure permanently low operating costs for a fast return on investment in the long-term. Indeed, recycling is all about recovering value from resource recovery, and Bollegraaf believes there is no such thing as waste, only resources with potential value. This inspiration is what drives the company’s operations, helping to add value to the recycling industry and contribute to saving the world’s limited resources.
“Recently, we’ve seen a big increase in the amount of plastic that needs to be recycled,” Leendert said. “People are going for more robotic techniques in regards to this, which Bollegraaf can supply, and we are also seeing increasing interest from companies in Africa who are looking for innovative recycling solutions.” Bollegraaf’s reliable and innovative equipment removes plastics from waste, minimising the amount going to landfill. It can also work with existing combined waste streams and in specialist plastic-only sorting installations.
Maintaining a busy calendar of events every year, Bollegraaf will be attending IFAT München on 7-11 September, Plastics Recycling Amsterdam 27-28 October and Pollutec, Lyon on 1-4 December.
