we are cirplus

and we are shaping the future of recycled plastics with technology

cirplus is the global marketplace for recyclates and plastic waste feedstock. Our team and technical partners have extensive experience in the manufacturing & recycling of thermoplastics. We know from first hand what it takes to build digital platforms and bring them to scale. We are 100% independent and guard strict neutrality in our work. We are based in Germany, but our ambitions are truly global.

We are on a mission to make buying and selling recycled plastics easier and more efficient than ever before. We accomplish this goal with our next generation B2B-marketplace, connecting the plastic & recycling industries. Transparency, global reach, and standard-setting are just a few of the features that cirplus provides.

Our vision is to make plastics 100% circular. We are only satisfied the moment no more plastics enters the environment, keeping this valuable material in the loop. To this end, we serve as the digital catalyst of the circular economy. With our work, we will lover the transaction costs for recycled plastics and thus massively reduce the environmental footprint of plastics overall. Let’s make plastic waste history!
