Zero Foam Waste

Traditionally 100% of XPE foam residues ended up being incinerated or dumped in landfills. Thanks to our foam recycling process our partners world wide avoid environmental damage.

Together we make sure that 0% foam goes to waste.

Have a look at the circular approach we employ when we collect foam residues. See how we transform foam scraps into a new raw material, which we then upcycle into high-quality and sustainable products that enhance sports fields and playgrounds. These products can be recycled again at the end of their life, thus completing the cycle.

Which solution suits you?

XPE foam is a high-volume product, making transportation costly. Since 1990, Schmitz has developed several unique methods to collect XPE foam residues efficiently and cost-effectively.

Which solution suits you best? That depends on material thickness, density, quantity, scrap dimensions and previous treatments. The distance to our factory is important too.

Please contact us, together we find out which solution works best for you.

Depending upon the quantity of XPE foam residues we offer several solutions:

Press bales

Shred the foam residues to flakes

Load the foam residues in bags

Load rolls

DAFA Shredder at plant

Shredder at your plant

In some cases, we can provide a shredder for your plant, making you part of the recycling process of your own residuals. We pick up the shredded foam and transport it to our own plant. In this way, transport costs are reduced significantly.


Contact us to find out what we can do for you

Are you wondering how we can process your XPE foam residues? The main commodities we use for our high-end products are closed cell cross-linked XPE and XPP foam. Depending on the quality, we can use other foam materials as well.
