The pre-sorted and unmixed delivery of plastic waste is the basis for single-variety milled material, which can be turned into re-granulate and re-compounds. In our state of the art production facilities, we ensure the provision of consistently high quality with automated batch traceability.
Ground materialFor the teams at AURORA, the processing and treatment of ground materials is both an environmentally friendly and a resource-conserving task. We particularly specialise in separating parts and metal-bearing materials that comprise two components. High-performance shredding mills process the plastic waste into ground material.

What precisely is meant by “polycarbonate” (PC)?
Polycarbonate belongs to the group of synthetic polymers and doesn’t usually have a fixed or permanent structure. The proportion of crystalline matter in PC is less than 5%. It’s a highly stable material, is extremely rigid and impact-resistant, and is characterised by a high degree of hardness.
What applications can polycarbonate be used for?
Polycarbonate is colourless and transparent. It’s expensive in relation to other plastic materials, so that’s why it’s generally used when it’s not possible to source other suitable plastics. This is often the case when other materials are brittle, soft or prone to scratching. Examples of product uses for PC are: CDs, DVDs, lenses for spectacles and other optical devices, O-rings or seal rings (for military vehicles), aeroplane windows, protective screens (for specialised vehicles) and burglary-resistant glazing.
What’s meant by “compound”?
Compound is a general term that refers to (pre-)sorted plastic and synthetic materials which also have other substances and additives mixed in with them. By a process known as compounding, at least two substances are combined to produce a uniform mixture.
What happens in the compounding procedure?
By means of compounding, the raw material is modified into one that has a specific application or a particular use case. Plastic materials can be compounded in a certain way to make them UV-resistant (for example, in the case of sunglasses or protective eyewear).
