Research and development

We endeavour to optimise our processing methods and to develop new applications in order to enhance the value of residues. Globally, the demand for raw materials has never been higher. At the same time however, the availability of natural resources is decreasing. The result is rising costs for raw materials. There is even a risk that certain products are no longer being produced in the future. The Raw Materials Initiative of the European Union, published in 2011, is a first step towards recognition of the need of saving raw materials.

Since its establishment in 2006, Rock Solid has been investing heavily in the material recycling process. The two key investment areas are separation technology and environmental quality improvement. Our involvement is present at every step along the way, right up until full-scale implementation of the technology.
