For many decades, the world has continuously been producing plastics for numerous goods and industries around the globe. Consequently plastic pollution has gained viral attention with large worldwide anti-plastic campaigns being initiated.

At RM Group we want to make a difference and have therefor implemented a sustainable management strategy in response to climate change.

As a major Belgian player, RM Group specializes in recycling and converting all types of plastics into high quality raw materials. The methods used are mechanical recycling, chemical recycling and energy recycling. This allows us to offer solutions for the growing demand in recycled plastics.


The paper industry is one of the largest industrial sectors worldwide, it includes products such as office paper, catalogues, tissue paper and paper packaging. This industry has a large impact on global deforestation, as over 40% of all industrial wood is used for the paper and pulp production.

At RM Group we believe that recycling paper and cardboard can have a long-term positive impact on the environment and includes many benefits, such as the conservation of natural resources, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and basically save space from waste paper lying around in our homes and offices.

Recovered fibres from recycled paper and cardboard are furthermore a major raw material for the growing number of paper mills producing recycled paper.

Our global network and infrastructure allows us to react promptly to ensure a cost-effective, end-to-end solution for your cardboard and paper waste.


An estimated of 92 million tonnes of textile waste is created each year and by 2030 this is expected to be as much as 134 million tonnes on a yearly basis.

Textile is a flexible material comprised of a network of natural or artificial fibres often referred to as thread or yarn. The current fashion industry however uses high volumes of non-renewable resources, including petroleum, extracted to produce clothes that are often used only for a short period of time.

At RM Group we start by sorting the different types of textiles according to their quality. Subsequently all textile types are disassembled and recycled into qualitative fibres. This way we contribute towards a more circular fashion.


Metals are highly recyclable and are a key material in the transition to achieve a circular economy. Furthermore, the recycled metal output is an excellent substitute for metal produced from virgin mineral sources. Recycling metals enables us to preserve natural resources as they demand less energy to process than the production of new products using raw materials.

Both ferrous as non-ferrous metals are recyclable.

Ferrous metals contain iron and are known for their strength, while non-ferrous metals do not contain iron, these are non-magnetic and lightweight.
