Contributing to solving a global problem: plastic pollution.

CleanTech innovation - made in Germany

Plastic pollution is a massive global problem. In Memmingen, Germany, for some years now a highly relevant innovation to provide part of the solution had been in development and is now ready to go to market and to scale.  

To make the circular economy work, it has to be economical.

The technology behind “CLEAN LOOP” makes it attractive for product waste causing parties to sell the compound plastic waste to cleyond – such preventing it from being downcycled – or even worse: be burned.

cleyond AG in Germany is offering one of the first (maybe THE first) real alternatives to downcycled PA/PE material.

New options for plastic granulate procurement

Purchasers of cleyond granulates will be able to substitute expensive virgin material. The quality produced by cleyond already now meets high standards (“close to prime” level) and will continuously be optimized.


The attractive price relation for purchasers of the regranulates:

Purchasing polyamide

Min. 18% – max. 26% savings vs virgin material*

Purchasing polyethylene

Min. 10% – max. 33% savings vs virgin material*
*spread due to typical price volatilities

Proud creators of the alternative.

The cleyond way of business

Our work is not just about Cleantech and granulates.

It’s even more about good business partnerships and helping our partners doing a great job.​

Bigger Picture

Profit is nice. Contribution is better.

Working on an endeavour that does not only make sense regarding business but also concerning a positive contribution to the (global) community. That’s the inspiration of the team at cleyond.

Problem Solving

"The solution is in there..."

somewhere, we just gotta find it.” is a phrase you might hear when you should come and visit. The team at cleyond considers problems-solving a challenge and has always been able to tackle whatever comes the way.


Be more critical than the customers could be.

Last but not least, the team is driven by the goal to deliver high-quality products in a reliable, hands-on and friendly way.

The clever combination of men and machine.

The Management Team

Andreas Nold CEO cleyond

Andreas Nold


In 2017, he would be the guy telling you that he is currently taking a break from his successful entrepreneurial activities – just to tell you two months later that he got involved with “an exciting endeavour some friends asked him to help out with” – that is cleyond / the CLEAN LOOP technology.

With a background in IT science, directly after the breakdown of the Berlin wall he started his first IT service company – and left it as a successful office material supplier ten years later. He and Jürgen Pfister met at his second enterprise ‘icubic’ (now Valantic) and are now eager to rock this boat together, too.

Jürgen Pfister Head of Supervisory Board

Jürgen Pfister


He’s the one who recognized the opportunity when he learned about the cleantech project that was going on in Memmingen. The combination of a solution for a more sustainable plastic industry combined with a profitable business model made him one of the early stage investors.

Also, it’s him who got Andres Nold on board last year to set up structures paving the way towards growth and scalability of a so far genius technology that needed finishing touches for the Go2Market. His background is in IT science, and he collected intense entrepreneurial experience from several enterprises. The banking and software world of Frankfurt is his home turf.

Tamer Baliklavayan Head of Procurement

Tamer Balikavlayan

Operations Manager / Authorized Signatory

He is an excellent example of the successful combination of creative problem-solving and the ability to add real value to the day-to-day business. With a solid but humble background as “Werkzeugtechniker” he worked his way up to being the logistics director of a medium-sized company.

He is the Swiss knife of everyday engineering problems, always finding a way to procure special materials that are needed. “Problems always carry their solution; you just gotta find out what it is” – that’s his mantra.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Jürgen Gnam

Bio-Chem & Waste Stream Management Expert

On the surface, he’s the cleantech / chem expert on the team – when you visit the facilities in Memmingen you will be able to trace his influence wherever you stumble over setups with test tubes. However, to put him into the ‘expert’ niche would be short-sighted, as he is also sporting a very entrepreneurial mind.

This showed when he turned a massive cost risk into a business opportunity for his former employer, ratiopharm. He is the one providing the know-how link to science – holding a part-time chair for Waste Stream Management at the specialized “Hochschule Nürtingen”.

Renè Gloor

Special Engineering

He would be the perfect man to show you around once you get the chance to visit the facilities in Memmingen as the plant as it exists now is mostly due to his making – from very first scratches on the floor to the working plant now. His background is in special engineering – a kind of Savile Row tailor helping you create the particular vision you got in your mind – only for engineering projects.

What started out as an external consulting gig, became his passion and he’s now a part of the core team as well as a shareholder of cleyond. Right now, he’s looking forward to getting pilot plant 1 live, proceeding to no. 2, 3 and enable scalability.

FAQ / cleyond

That depends – but we can assure you we will make things feasible as far as possible. Please contact our team to investigate logistics solutions.

Again, this might depend a bit – on the nature of the production waste, on the logistics behind. In most of the cases, we are able to offer an attractive deal – including pick-up service.

Right now we are developing a licensing program that is intended to help entrepreneurs to use CLEAN LOOP globally. If you are interested in using CLEAN LOOP as a licensee either a) check out the current opportunity to take place in our ICO for the “CYO Token” and/or b) please make sure to get in touch with our team.
