Serious matter of recycling
Most of the waste resulting from wallpaper production is recycled and added to a circular flow of potentially recyclable resources. Base paper for new wallpaper is created from paper and cardboard. We have also jointly developed a method for treating washing waste and residual plastisols with Wallcover Tapetenproduktions GmbH (WCT). All domestic and some international wallpaper manufacturers now send their PVC waste to WCT. This means that washing waste and plastisol waste no longer has to be disposed of as hazardous waste. 2,000 tons of waste each year is converted in this way into marketable PVC granulate.
