we are cirplus
and we are shaping the future of recycled plastics with technology
cirplus is the global marketplace for recyclates and plastic waste feedstock.
Our team and technical partners have extensive experience in the manufacturing & recycling of thermoplastics. We know from first hand what it takes to build digital platforms and bring them to scale.
We are 100% independent and guard strict neutrality in our work. We are based in Germany, but our ambitions are truly global.
We are on a mission to make buying and selling recycled plastics easier and more efficient than ever before.
We accomplish this goal with our next generation B2B-marketplace, connecting the plastic & recycling industries.
Efficiency, reliability in procurement, global reach, and standard-setting are just a few of the features that cirplus provides.
Managing Director of the Institute of Plastics and Circular Economy (IKK) in Hanover
The Institute of Plastics and Circular Economy IKK considers in its research the entire life cycle of biobased and conventional plastics, from material development and characterization to application-oriented implementation & recycling.
Recycling Expert, PhD in Chemistry
35 years of experience in recycling
processes and optimization
Area of expertise:
M.Sc. process engineer, PhD in the field of biopolymers
Expert for material cycles and Certified Cradle to Cradle Consultant
Polymer Expert, PhD in Chemical Engineering

Plastic expertise since 1988
The plastic institute Lüdenscheid is one of the most experienced testing facility for plastics in Germany and internationally. Located in the heart of the German plastic industry, the institute delivers material and chemical analysis tailored to the customers needs.
Research and Development partner
The material development of thermoplastic polymers is one of the key competences of the institute. With its research activities in the field of plastics recycling, the IPT has been contributing significantly to the subject of sustainability and recycling management.
Our vision is
to make plastics 100% circular.
We are only satisfied the moment no more plastics enters the environment, keeping this valuable material in the loop. To this end, we serve as the digital catalyst of the circular economy.
Let’s make plastic waste history!
With our work, we will lower the transaction costs for recycled plastics and thus massively reduce the environmental footprint of plastics overall.
