PDR has been an established player for material and substance-based recycling and recovery for more than 20 years. Our utmost priorities are resource conservation and sustainability. In the worldwide unique plant for recycling of PU foam cans in Thurnau, the cans are mechanically shredded out of contact with air. Based in the town of Thurnau in Upper Franconia, we also work for global players such as HP. As a medium-sized company with a workforce of around 60 employees, we are known for our expertise in PU chemicals and handling of hazardous waste. We have many years of experience in the treatment of spent PU foam cans. The nation-wide PDR industry solution has become well established in the market. We are proud of our recovery rate of around 80%. These recovered raw materials are returned to the production cycle.

Year Founded:

PDR is the specialist in the recycling of  used products and of production residues. Thanks to our use of innovative technologies and intelligent services,  we achieve an optimum level of material recovery. Together with our customers, we bring the products obtained  back into the production cycle in such a way as to conserve resources.

We are also HP's partner for EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) for recycling print cartridges. More than 10 years of experience speak for themselves. In Thurnau we sort, separate and treat the incoming charges to guarantee pure grade raw materials.

The goal of our work is to protect the environment. We are committed to Agenda 21 and sustainable development, in particular to chapter 30 which lays out the requirements for environment-based management.

We use innovative environmental technology to make an active contribution to preserving resources and promoting climate protection. Compliance with all laws and regulations is an integral part of our activities. Wherever it is technically possible and economically viable, we do more to reach these goals than is expected of us.

Being aware of our responsibility, we use our experience to design our operating processes and workflows to ensure the health and safety of our employees and prevent any damage to our fellow citizens or the environment.

We measure the quality of our work by the level of satisfaction among our customers. We continuously work to improve this. This is the basis upon which we establish further recycling solutions.

We strive to achieve high level of added value within a socially beneficial and ecologically oriented market economy.

Our approach and actions are based on the principle of sustainability. The responsibility for future generations is part of our company's ethical system.

Mutual trust in our dealings with our employees, customers and partners is the source of our success. We achieve this by focusing on our will to perform, team spirit and respect for one another. We remind ourselves of this fact every day.
