Abstract
Carpet Recycling Europe GmbH (CRE), an initiative of the European carpet industry, has developed the world's first automatic sorting plant for used carpets with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes/year close to Mainz (Rhine-Main Area, Germany) since May 2000. Based on these experiences of the last two years, an overview is given on the technical and economical performance of an sorting plant within a closed loop recycling system for carpets.
