»iCycle: intelligent composite recycling»

The iCycle® process is a thermo-chemical technology able to separate many different materials. In the process, plastics and further organic materials are thermally decomposed in an oxygen-free atmosphere. Thus, not only contained metals and fibers are gently disintegrated, but also high-calorific fuels can be gained as oil and gas. The iCycle® process is able to fully separate and eliminate pollutants such as halogens or dioxins in order to win products of a unique quality.
