03.09.2020 Meet the Buyer event - Dansk Retursystem

Venue: Baldersbuen 1, 2640 Hedehusene, Denmark


Innovation and needs of our buyer

Dansk Retursystem operates a collective deposit and return system that makes it as easy as possible for everyone in Denmark to contribute to the recycling of bottles and cans. They collect and separate more than 1,4 billion used bottles and cans and send them for recycling in a closed loop. They ensure that they are converted into raw materials to produce new bottles, cans and other food-packaging materials. They drive one of the best such systems in the world, and right now have a return rate of 90% and are therefore looking into the last missing 10%. 

Dansk Retursystem is looking for solutions in the following fields: 

  • Unmanned, easy, intuitive way consumers can return their bottles and cans
  • Easy for owners to empty and operate
  • Solutions equipped to receive and compress PET, aluminum and glass
  • Solutions equipped for remaining fluids
  • IoT solutions (e.g. monitoring when bins are full)
  • Powered by green energy (e.g. solar power)
