Compost vs. recycling

Why composting is the only real cycle and why recycling is a downward spiral.

Compost


  • It is the origin of all cycles.
  • It happens independently through nature.
  • All approved materials are free of pollutants.
  • Materials do not have to be separated.
  • The quality is 100% regained.
  • Compost is food for our nature.
  • CO2 is returned to the earth.
  • No microplastics are created.

Conclusion: Good for sustainable applications.
Works infinitely often, provides natural fertilizer for plants, is harmless for humans, animals and the environment.

Recycling


  • Current recycling rate 6%.
  • The quality decreases with each cycle.
  • Incineration is considered recycling in Germany.
  • It is not a cycle, but a downward spiral.
  • The plastic problem shifts into the future.
  • Recyclates are of inferior quality.
  • Only recycled PET is approved for food.
  • Plastic contains harmful plasticizers and additives.

Conclusion: Good for already existing plastic.
The quality is constantly decreasing. In the end, the material is incinerated and has to be disposed of as hazardous waste.
