Director Lars Steffensen started HAWFISK 20 years ago – HAWFISK is a large fish acquisition company that distributes fish worldwide. Through his experience at HAWFISK, Lars saw the massive amount of EPS fish boxes being thrown away after only a single use.
This waste of a re-useable resource became the starting point for the Recyclepit business. Today Recyclepit is a Danish cleantech recycling company that sustainably addresses an extensive “waste” problem: it transforms used fish boxes, insulation material, packaging, and other post-use waste fractions – into valuable recycled GPPS raw material. The vision of Recyclepit is to handle EPS as part of a sustainable and circular economy – which benefits the oceans, the climate, and the customers’ economy.
