B+B’s mission for optimal recycling in a circular economy

At B+B, we have been developing and building machines for the plastic recycling industry for over 30 years. We have seen recycling technologies come and go. What started as an economical ground, today, we acknowledge the growing need to preserve our world.

EUROPE´S PLASTIC RECYCLING MISSION AND THE B+B PARTICIPATION

The European Union waste management statistics show that 74% of consumer plastics ends up in landfills (39%) or is incinerated (35%). Only 26% of the collected plastic waste is recycled. Of this percentage, only half is recycled within the EU. The other half is exported.

ABOUT the heilig group

It all started in 1978 when N.M. Heilig B.V. was founded by Nico Maria Heilig. The company started out with one welding machine, followed by the maintenance and production of various machinery. These services were the cause of an unrivaled success and, during the years, lead to specialization and acquisition of related businesses in machinery and installations for the bulk handling and recycling industry. In fulfilling our mission to offer our clients full-service in engineering, developing, manufacturing, and installing, we have extended the Heilig Group to what it is today. A group formed by individual companies offering a whole concept of solutions in recycling, waste management, bulk handling, wood processing, heat exchanging, industrial mixing, and electrotechnology. The 10 Heilig Group companies, located in different European countries, compose a powerful and leading conglomerate serving customers all over the world.
