Why the plastics industry is struggling to maintain its reputation

Kraus & Naimer presents its new cooperation with WIFI St. Pölten

Vienna, August 5, 2021: The plastics industry, which counts among the major industries worldwide, is currently struggling to maintain its reputation. Each year, more than 400 tons of plastic are produced. However, in Austria, only 25 percent of plastic waste have to be recycled. Microplastics accumulating in our oceans present a serious problem. The abrasion of tires is the number one cause of microplastics (approximately 62 percent).  As a plastics processing company, we believe that the general fear concerning plastics is greater than it should be. There are plenty of reasons why plastics are an excellent material that should not be regarded solely as harmful.
