Participation AT The SGE Symposium Winterthur: a success
On September 2, 2021, the 9th Swiss Green Economy / SGE Symposium took place in Winterthur. As an exhibitor, our innovative company demonstrated to participants from business, politics and science how recyclable plastic boards can be produced from otherwise incinerated mixed plastic waste using the latest technology and know-how. Our use case examples showed the many interested visitors to our booth not only how versatile such boards are, but also how we do closed-loop projects together with our customers.
It was a very successful event, we thank the event organizers!
Opening Of the research project "KREIS HAUS"
The research project KREIS Haus in Feldbach (Zurich) was launched by ZHAW and their partners. We from UpBoards have sponsored some recycling boards. These were built into a multifunctional furniture and two raised gardening beds. Many thanks to the ZHAW for this opportunity.
KREIS Haus offers tours and workshops on the topic:
"How a functioning circular economy can be implemented in buildings in the smallest of spaces. From the building materials to the nutrients from the wastewater - everything is in the cycle".
Information event circular economy Buchs (AG)
On August 12, 2021, an information event on the topic of circular economy took place at the premises of Transport AG Aarau in Buchs. The focus was primarily on plastics, whose recycling in Switzerland (with the exception of PET) is still in its early stages.
Four local entrepreneurs, the local section of the GLP party in Buchs and the association Swiss Recycling have impressively demonstrated the opportunities and limitations of sustainable cycles. In Switzerland, for example, a large proportion of these plastics still ends up in incineration. Recycling these materials is energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and secures Switzerland's access to raw materials that are alternatively only imported from abroad.
Raphael Markstaller presented upboards.ch at this information event and showed the interested audience how mixed plastic waste can be recycled into plastic boards that can be used in a variety of ways.
Upboards @ Praxiszirkel Kreislaufwirtschaft
Opportunities and benefits of the circular economy, a topic we deal with intensively.
At the invitation of the Hightech Zentrum/HTZ Aargau, Raphael Markstaller presented the practical example "Innovative recycling boards made of mixed plastic" during the HTZ's kick-off event "Praxiszirkel Kreislaufwirtschaft" on June 8, 2021.
This cross-sector event for producers and processors as well as interested parties who want to take a closer look at the topic of the circular economy and new business models based on it will use practical examples and expert input to illustrate the opportunities and benefits of a circular economy.At the invitation of the Hightech Zentrum/HTZ Aargau, Raphael Markstaller presented the practical example "Innovative recycling boards made of mixed plastic" during the HTZ's kick-off event "Praxiszirkel Kreislaufwirtschaft" on June 8, 2021.

SERVICE launch OCTOBER 2020: online shop
Our sustainably produced boards made of 100% recycled mixed plastic form the substrate for this. This special roof structure also protects the green roof permanently against frost and thus the freezing of the roots.
Combine the protection for your bicycles with more habitat for plants and small animals: a valuable contribution to biodiversity!
The bicycle shelters are available immediately from Velopa.
Together with Lüscher-Landtechnik AG we developed a mowing robot garage made of weatherproof materials.
With the robust shelter made of our recycling plates your mowing robot remains protected from rain and small hailstorms
The mowing robot garages are now available from Lüscher Landtechnik AG.
