We are the newest of the dual systems in Germany. Our dynamic way of thinking and many years of experience in the waste disposal sector give us a crucial role in the circular economy.
PreZero Dual started out as a successful licenser for retail packaging put into circulation by brands such as Dulano, Milbona, Bon Gelati, Alesto, K Favourites and K-Classic.
As of now, PreZero Dual is offering its services and know-how as a reliable partner to all businesses that put retail packaging into circulation. Together, we help ensure that your packaging is collected and recycled and that as much of the recyclable material as possible is brought back into circulation.
Our partners have the option of using our recycling tool for assessing the recyclability of their packaging so that new products can be made of reused material and statutory packaging obligations will be met.

Questions about licensing
What is a license?
Packaging in Germany is subject to so-called extended product responsibility. In Germany, participation in this system is obligatory. That means that manufacturers who put packaging filled with merchandise on the market are obliged to participate in dual system packaging.
Who must have a license?
Anyone who distributes packing filled with merchandise 1. commercially, 2. for the first time, and 3. when this packing incurs at the end user.
Which packaging must be licensed?
In general, all retail packaging, outer packaging, and shipping packaging, including the entire filler material, as well as service packaging which typically lands in private trash, must be licensed in the system.
What role does the recyclability play in packaging?
For all who put packaging into circulation, the rating of the recyclability is a very important issue. By putting recyclable packaging material onto the market, more materials can be recycled and with that, we can have a positive influence on our environment. Our partners can use our proprietary recycling tool for evaluating the recyclability of their materials. To interested parties, we offer models showing how participating in our dual system costs you less if you already have certificates proving the recyclability of your packaging. We are happy to share our expertise, should you have any question, and look forward to developing recycling innovations together with you.
