Supporting laboratory processes • 1 fte

CircuFoam is a new activity in which we use a revolutionary recycling technique, namely the production of polyurethane repolyol (PUR) from discarded mattresses. The new CircuFoam building in Lelystad will be completed in the spring of 2022, after which the factory will be immediately operational. This innovative production process is unique in the Netherlands and will have a major impact on the use of circular raw materials.

CircuFoam is a separate organization that emerged from RetourMatras. In addition to sustainable mattress recycling and the reuse of raw materials, CircuFoam focuses purely on converting foam (polyurethane) from discarded mattresses into repolyol. Repolyol is a circular raw material from which new foam products can be made, such as circular mattresses.
