About us

Ioniqa is a scale up specialized in circular processes for plastic materials. In 2019 we launched a breakthrough industrial process for PET packaging materials, with an approach for other materials to follow soon. The new plant will be the basis (‘blueprint’) for its licensing strategy. Our R&D labs and offices are located in Eindhoven, we have a pilot-plant in the Port of Rotterdam and a demonstration plant in Geleen. We have strong partnerships with leading value chain players to ensure that our breakthrough recycling process is successful to make a difference in minimizing plastic waste.
