Plastic has a bad reputation — it pollutes the environment, is based on fossil resources, and the ratio of recycled vs. wasted material is still very low. This start-up wants to turn things around: cirplus, founded by Christian Schiller and Volkan Bilici, is on a mission to turn post-consumer plastic into a valuable resource again. Their platform makes it easier to lead it in cycles — an opportunity that businesses do not want to miss.
Our initiative that drives the circular economy forward — together with start-ups, established companies, and other stakeholders.
In the interview, Christian Schiller, founder and CEO of cirplus, tells us about his entrepreneurial journey and the challenges and chances in the plastics sector. He also gives advice to other founders and shares a bit of background on office life and what helped his start-up grow.
