Welcome to RETech
the export network for the german recycling and waste management industry

The German Recycling Technologies and Waste Management Partnership e.V. was established at the end of 2011 as a result of the Recycling and Efficiency Technology initiative of the Federal Ministry of the Environment. (see BMU press release).

RETech activities are focused on the promotion of applying sustainable environmental technology of the German recycling abroad.

RETech is the contact for all public and private organisations and/or institutions domestic and abroad, taking an interest in the German resource and efficiency technology. RETech offers a neutral platform for companies interested in innovative technologies for recycling and waste management issues and their export. Within this platform members may exchange information on technical issues such as the financing or the hedging of foreign business. To establish a network of activists supporting the export of German recycling and waste management technology as well as the transfer of knowledge, RETech cooperates with ministries, subordinated authorities, institutes and associations both in Germany and abroad.
