Current used plants


The usage of used plants provides diverse benefits, such as:

– lower investment costs,

– quicker availability of products, for a faster profitability,

– proven technology and functionality,

– approved quality,

– raw material/utility consumption known in advance, ..


Following lists offer an overview of currently available used plants. For further information please contact us:
