High packaging volume due to seasonal factors: Large ripper handles up to 1,000 kg of cardboard articles per hour

According to the Federal Environment Agency, 107 kilograms of packaging waste are produced per capita per year in Germany. A large proportion of this arises from cardboard elements of all sizes, which play an essential role in the safe transport of goods. But it is not only the end user who has to deal with packaging waste, but also the companies themselves - because the number of returns is rising steadily, so that in 2018 there was a total of around 280 million returns. To counteract this problem, sustainable and effective solutions must be found for the recycling of packaging.
