Since 2019, WDS Group and OneCircle have been partners to effectively support the drinks industry with the post bar use of KeyKegs, offering a truly circular solution as outlined in the OneCircle mission.
WDS offers a key link in the sustainable KeyKeg materials return supply chain.
During the past 18 months, WDS have successfully collected 25 tons of KeyKegs which is approximately 20.800 KeyKegs.
OneCircle's partnership with WDS is evidence that the first case studies can be shared; delivering closed loop plastics collection communities in regional markets which are then connected to our global network, currently work in progress, every day actions that focus on creating a world-wide collection community to get all the KeyKeg's plastics in a closed loop.
In addition to the collection activities, we spend significant R&D capacity to further increase the percentage of re-used [truly circular] material in the next new KeyKeg's.
Our collection partners, such as WDS play a critical part in the ability for us to deliver on our objectives as set out in our mission.
To offer some additional insight we share what happens after receiving the materials from our partner WDS group:
- The different plastics from the collected kegs will be shredded, separated and finally sorted on an automatic recycling line.
- The recovered mono materials PP, PE and PET are then further processed to be used again for the production of new KeyKeg parts.
- In this way today 86% of every collected used KeyKeg is turned into new KeyKeg parts.
- The remaining part of the keykegs will be recycled differently.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank WDS for being such a pro-active partner.
