Our Vision

for a greener society and a closer world

A breath, a connection. A cycle.
"Metamorphosis” is the first film by Paprec Recycling. It is an experiencial manifesto on life and recycling. The film illustrates the group’s desire “for a greener society and a closer world.
Contemplative and sensitive, with organic sound design and voice overs, it is a true and memorable audio-visual experience
Metamorphosis” has received awards at three festivals :

  • During the 2017 Films & Companies festival, Akim Laouar Aronsen received the award for best production and Pierre Aviat took home the prize for best sound design. 
  • At the 2017 Deauville Green Awards, the film won the Golden Green Award for the short awareness messages category. 
  • And last but not least, “Metamorphosis” won over the jury at the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards festival, which awarded it the Silver Dolphin in the “environmental issues and concerns” category.

The will of Jean-Luc Petithuguenin : 
“I wanted to make a film that would be a manifesto on life, on recycling, a film illustrating the motto of the group that I created 25 years ago: ‘for a greener society and a closer world’.
I thus gave carte blanche to the ‘Les Fils De’ production company and my communications teams.
I am happy that this film shows the beauty of the landscapes where our sites are based, the industrial beauty of our activities and the involvement of the women and men who work for us.”
Jean-Luc Petithuguenin. Founder and CEO, Paprec Group. 

Putting Recycling on the Industrial Cutting Edge

Bigger and Better Recycling
Over the course of a few years, with better regulations and a favourable environmental context, recycling has gone from DIY to major industry. Every day, Paprec strives to push back the limits of what recycling can do, constantly developing new technologies and skills.
Better Recovery Rates
Paprec always leaves a lot of space for innovation, which serves two purposes: recycling new materials, and optimising the recycling techniques. To reach the recovery rate objectives, the Paprec Group has, among other things, greatly improved some of its branches: plastics, batteries, industrial and construction waste, electric and electronic waste are some of the examples.

Le recyclage, une industrie de pointe

Working for the Planet

Saving Available Resources
In a finite world, raw mineral material is limited. By facing the fact that these resources will one day be depleted, recycling is considered the “mining of tomorrow.”
Saving the Energy Potential of Raw Material
When first processed, raw materiel consumes a lot of energy to be transformed. Now, recycling can greatly reduce that energy use: it takes three times less energy to make glass from old glass than from raw sand.
A Long Term Vision
Convinced that recycling will be the 21st century’s premier environmental profession, Paprec leads ambitious investment policies, aiming to have the most proficient and cutting edge technologies in the industry.
