Responsible acting for the purpose of sustainability:
Plastics recycling by conviction for more than three decades
For over 30 years, pekutherm Kunststoﬀe GmbH has been specializing in the production of acrylic and polycarbonate recyclates made from post-industrial, extruded sheet rests.
We are a full-service provider and oﬀer our customers a complete concept for disposing all post-industrial, semiﬁnished plastic types.
Whatever we do, we act according to our principles and always with our business policies in mind:
For over 30 years now, long before sustainability moved into the focus of public attention, we’ve been professionally recycling valuable raw materials and so made a contribution to save natural resources. And we’ve been supporting other production companies to produce more sustainably and economically.
Responsible action is the foundation of our business culture – in both ecological and social concerns. This also includes the fair and respectful treatment of employees, customers and suppliers as well as a highest possible transparency of all business processes.
Strong together – with commitment and competence:

Since January 1, 2020, Pekutherm GmbH is supplied with green electricity by LichtBlick. The electrical energy fed into the power grid by LichtBlick does not come from nuclear, coal or oil power plants, and is obtained entirely from ecological energy sources. By purchasing LichtBlick electricity, pekutherm avoids 136.83 tons of attributable CO emissions annually.
High-quality machines, trained staﬀ and know-how based on many years of experience are crucial for the quality of our services and products and ultimately the key to success. Reliable and punctual work ﬂows are a necessary precondition for smooth processes.
Thanks to our modern and powerful logistics and the use of fuel-saving vehicles, we are capable to pick up plastics and deliver our products cost-eﬀectively. Especially high-capacity boxes help to collect bulky materials without additional work steps.
We process the plastics exclusively on high-quality granulators to ensure a careful but nevertheless eﬃcient material grinding.
To eliminate dust, we’ve developed special sifters enabling us to accurately control the regrind’s ﬁne portion. You can use recyclates processed in this way exactly like prime virgin resins; transparent acrylic or polycarbonate recyclates keep their transparency and brilliance.
All of the company’s employees are thoroughly trained. They know that absolute cleanliness and contamination-free materials are of crucial importance for the pre-paration and the processing of the scraps, what is especially true for transparent material types.
Our management possesses more than 30 years of detailed market and material knowledge. We exactly know the origin and the quality of all semi-ﬁnished scraps we buy, and know what matters in processing them. This is the only way to achieve the quality our customers expect from our company and gives them the decisive competitive advantage.
