After collection and delivery by specialised companies, plastics waste can be separated and crushed to obtain raw materials. PVC packaging waste is ground into new compounds, and used to produce drainage sheets for ground treatment.

After Hamon (www.hamon.com) has dismantled the cooling towers and removed the tray, a second company, CIFRA (www.cifra.fr), produces thermoforming recycled products such as honeycombs for water treatment following further recycling and treatment.

Hoser (www.kunststoffmatten24.de), another example, produces high-tech special boards from recycled coated fabrics, such as mats for ground stabilisation used as flooring in horse dressage and show jumping.

Similarly, post-industrial PVC/PE film waste is used to create greenhouse flooring.
