Cradle to Cradle

Hörnlein is the ideal partner for the world's fastest realisation of product ideas according to the cradle-to-cradle principle in climate-positive serial production.


Zero Waste

Hörnlein offers the best solutions for customers to develop their product ideas optimally and realise them according to the cradle-to-cradle concept.

Cradle to cradle, in other words "from origin to origin", makes it possible to create products following the example of nature in an infinite circle. At the end of a product's life it is used for another product and therefore, nothing is wasted or gets lost.

There is no trash, only material of products which helps to build new ones. Because in nature there is no waste, there are just nutrients. In a perfect cycle, new life is created over and over again.  

In 2023, everything we create and the processes involved will be benefit the planet.

With our various competencies we support the complete production cycle including raw material logistics in a perfectly natural circulatory system.


Raw Material Management

Complete end-of-life vehicles with all valuable elements such as copper, nickel and aluminum usually become low-grade structural steel after disposal. Often, nature is destroyed by mining and surface mining. In addition there is an immense CO2 emissions during

raw material extraction and transport. We put an end to that! Following the cradle to cradle concept, we aim to only use pure materials. If this is not possible, we often use joint

technologies such as gluing, so that the raw materials

are not contaminated. This way, the pure materials

can be used over and over again.

Intelligent design instead of waste management and down-cycling
