Paneltim initiates pilot project for the retrieval of used air scrubbers.

The Paneltim Buy Back Program is launching a new pilot project to test the reuse of panels from used air scrubbers. Thanks to a trial partnership with Boekhorsttrading, Paneltim panels will be bought back and recycled after their lifespan.

Last week, the first test delivery was received. The air scrubber in question has been in service for over 10 years and will now be tested for its ability to convert the plastic panels into high-quality raw materials for further processing within Paneltim's production.

If this test is successful, this segment could be a valuable addition to the Buy Back Program, which previously consisted of offcuts and agro panels and grids. This taps into new sources to acquire recyclable material and convert it into new high-quality panels. Moreover, this project reduces the likelihood of plastic ending up unnecessarily in landfills.

"With Boekhorsttrading, we have found an interesting partner for the collection of used air scrubbers," says Tom Devoldere, Innovation Manager at Paneltim. "We look forward to a long-term partnership that contributes positively to the circularity of our products."
