saperatec is an innovative technology solutions provider for high-value recycling

The company has developed and markets a patented technology to split up waste composite materials into valuable secondary raw materials. saperatec thereby bridges the gap between waste accumulation and companies specialised in processing secondary raw materials. The technology development is done in the company's laboratories and in the operating pilot plant at its site in Bielefeld.

Due to the progressive shortage of raw materials, waste is becoming an important source of raw materials. For instance, rare materials are used in electric and electrical equipment besides the masses of steel or aluminium. These rare materials bear a significant role in the function of the high-tech products. Conventional treatment methods do not achieve the desired result in the recycling of electronic scrap such as flat panels and photovoltaic modules.

saperatec is technology leader for the release of bonded and coated structures and hereby enables the recovery of valuable raw materials. Intelligent physical and chemical principles are used in order to produce innovative secondary raw materials.
 
Our mission: To make waste to value

Many years of scientific work and 2 years of development for the technical realisation preceded the foundation of saperatec GmbH. saperatec was founded in 2010 by a group of experts from the fields of chemistry and process engineering. The involvement of venture capital from High-Tech Gründerfonds and Gründerfonds Bielefeld-Ostwestfalen opened the opportunity of rapid development of industrial production structures.

In the summer of 2011, saperatec received the operating permit based on the BImSchG, the starting-signal to build a pilot plant with an annual capacity of about 500 tons for the first application in PV recycling. The commissioning of this plant was in August 2011.
