THE CORE TO A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Humans generate a remarkable amount of garbage: over 2 billion tons per year. For a long time dumping complex waste streams (such as e-waste, polluted soil, or industrial rest streams) was the only option. That needs to change!
Team CORE enables the recycling of these complex waste streams by innovative techniques.

A shredder focusing on reducing the number of battery fires in the e-waste recycling industry to zero.
A system that automatically scans products coming into a recycling center and via scanning technologies detect the batteries and separate them from the other streams.
Who are we?
A decade ago Gabby van Meer saw the potential within “elementary retraction”. A technique that turns complex waste streams which are currently burned or dumped into useful and eco-friendly products. However, creating a circular solution requires more than just a good idea; it demands a good team. In 2018 Team CORE was founded; a student team focused on the further development of this technique and many others. The team booked great progress and only after a few years CORE Chemistry was founded. A start-up to focus on realizing this technique and building the first factories in the Netherlands of their kind!
Within CORE Chemistry, the technology of elementary retraction and other recycling technologies are translated to factories.
Closely connected to CORE Chemistry is Team CORE: a student team that is all about developing innovative technology to create the first circular generation.
