July 25, 2021 was a very special day for the German family-owned company Stadler Anlagenbau: Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, representative of the city government of Mexico City, and Gautier Mignot, ambassador of the European Union delegation, inaugurated the largest and most modern recycling plant in Latin America.
The high-tech waste separation technology comes from Stadler, which have been active in the Mexican market with a Brazilian subsidiary and are now also a customer of German Centre Mexico with the founding of a Mexican subsidiary. “Initially, we received inquiries from Mexico through our company in the USA,” said CEO Willi Stadler.
“Through the first projects, we saw the business potential in Mexico and realized that it was worth establishing a sales office there.” The new plant creates 400 jobs and processes 1,000 tons of household waste from the mega metropolis daily. Each ton of recycled plastic saves between 1.5 and 3.2 tons of greenhouse gases compared to new plastic.
