Aspioneer (A): Could you tell us a bit about your organization and how it works?
Christian Schiller (C): “Formed in December 2018, Cirplus is the first global B2B marketplace for circular plastics. Its platform connects waste managers, recyclers, and product manufacturers to allow them to buy and sell recycled plastics in a reliable and cost-effective way by digitizing the entire procurement process. Users can gain an overview of the global supply and demand and will be able to process the entire transaction at one central location. Our platform has more than 1,200 companies from 100 countries onboard and at peak times, up to 1.3 million tons of material are listed. The goal is to make plastic waste history by making circular plastics the go-to material. We are doing it by building a platform for finding, negotiating, contracting, shipping, insuring, and paying for recyclates and plastic waste trades across the globe. Through standardization and digitalization, transactional costs will be lowered and Cirplus will make plastic recyclates the solution. Our company is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany.”
