At Zirq we are committed to be part of the solution for the worldwide plastic problem. We have through years of R&D, developed innovative solutions for recycling of low-quality mixed plastics, that typically are landfilled or incinerated. Our know-how and solutions within metal- and plastics recycling has further developed into the field of developing circular solutions for medical waste. Historically, medical waste has mainly been landfilled or incinerated globally. The problem is massive. We aim to be a solution.
Our ambition is to offer circular solutions to one of the larger waste streams globally - contaminated medical waste – that currently operate under yesterday’s recycling regimes.
At Zirq we believe in an industrial approach. Scale and efficiency is needed to combat our biggest competitor – non-renewable virgin raw materials. With our industrial and sustainable solutions, we are an enabler of the circular economy.
Zirq Solutions has industrial backing from the Norsk Gjenvinning Group, Norway's largest recycling company and Zirq’s largest shareholder.
