Environmental aspects include energy consumption, emissions, waste or wastewater. However, indirect factors such as product service life, management and planning decisions or the behaviour of contractors can also have major effects. If you want to set environmental standards, a responsible in-house and big picture approach are required. At Centroplast, sustainability has been a vital part of corporate culture for years, and has even been part of our parent company’s name, CENTROTEC Sustainable AG, since 2004.

In addition to our high-efficiency, economical products, we are particularly focused on potential reductions of energy consumption and pollution emissions.


The bioplastic for environmentally-friendly solutions
CENTROPLAST BC is our first plastic produced from CO2-neutral, renewable raw materials. The biopolymer material with the properties of a technical thermoplastic can be recycled 100% and is also fully biodegradable via composting in accordance with DIN EN 13432. CENTROPLAST BC decomposes fully in soil without polluting either the soil or the ground water. This innovation in plastics technology offers a wide range of applications for environmentally-conscious companies.
