Following the slump in international trade – especially to and from China – the number of enquiries relating to recycling, in particular the optimisation of recycling processes, increased. The result was the founding of TheKnot in 2017, in which we brought together specialists in a network to help companies with recycling in the best possible way, develop special machines or plastics, set up functioning systems for the input and output of a wide variety of materials and provide long-term assistance or support in the development, implementation and maintenance of circular cycles. And we do this worldwide.
