A research project on the recycling of MDF boards shows that sustainability and efficiency can work hand in hand. Involved in this project is our screw press model MST 04 used for mechanical pressing of pieces of compressed wood free of glue. The result: dry wood fibres usable for manufacturing new MDF boards and furniture! It’s great that once again we contributed to getting a sustainable value-added cycle going.


Throughout the processes, REINARTZ works like a docked technical department, from whose all-round service performance our customers benefit: thanks to many years of experience in a young industry, due to numerous plant implementations of various sizes and services, based on our leading know-how.

We are pleased to accompany our customers through our sustainable, cost-efficient after-sales service. You have questions, we have the right answers and corresponding services for your needs. Our all-around performance service enables you to participate reliably, optimally and as quickly as possible in the insect meal production by pressing methods.


We are delighted to receive the award from the Hanse Society in 2019. Delegations from politics, business, trade and The Hanseatic Society joined the award ceremony in our production hall and congratulated. It awards the Hanse Price 2019 to a Neuss company that operates successfully with leading know-how, characterized by international, cosmopolitan relations.

Our plant technologies and separation processes inspire all over the world, they and our services are unique worldwide. The Hanse Price is a recognition of our constant work and development.

The technologies, which are always precisely geared to the respective starting materials, are second to none in terms of features, performance and results. By retrieving our portfolio of services, we are even in our most recent business unit, namely the recovery of protein from insect larvae for an efficient production of animal feed, one of the leading national and international providers.

Our employees successfully assist and support our customers on site: from Brazil to South Korea, from Canada to South Africa. The leadership pressing processes and the excellent, profound know-how of REINARTZ from the Hanseatic city of Neuss in research, development and the individual production processes, enjoy high reputation across all sectors.


We make sustainability profitable. So far, the pineapple stems and leaves have been left unused on the plantations in Costa Rica: an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes with fatal consequences for agriculture. Cows were so stressed by the plague of mosquitos that they thinned and gave only a little milk. Calves died, only a few were born.
Thanks to the REINARTZ separation process, the remnants of the pineapple harvest are made economically usable, among others by pressing the biomass on site in Limón. The plant is about to be completed in our production facility in Neuss. As part of a promising project funded by KFW DEG, press juice and press cake will be produced from the pineapple stems and leaves – after delivery and installation of the plant – and as such can be used as fertilizer for recultivation of the usable area and as animal feed. Clothes are made from the fibers of the pineapple leaves. New jobs are created. Thanks to REINARTZ, biomass becomes a sustainable resource!

Insect Proteins

Both as animal feed and for the human food chain, where insect proteins may officially be processed since 2018. A ground-breaking topic that we have been dealing with for a long time:

With passion, commitment, science and know-how, we have been dedicated for years to an all-in-one solution for protein recovery from insects. In the meantime, we have developed a broad, individually applicable portfolio – from targeted advice to customised engineering packages as well as complete plant designs to implementation and needs-based after-sales service. All from one provider!

Plant Proteins

On the one hand, precious food oil is obtained by gentle cold pressing. By the Reinartz process, all the aromas, essential ingredients and fat-soluble vitamins are retained in their original form during the mechanical processing.

This makes natural oils especially valuable. On the other hand, we produce so-called “press cakes” with our processes. The dry residual substance of the Reinartz pressing process contains high quality proteins, which can be used as nutritious feed in livestock breeding. Without chemical additives, first class in quality.

What are proteins?

The human body needs proteins. In the course of the body’s own utilisation process proteins are split into their individual amino acids. In the next step, the body now builds up its own proteins of these amino acids – as needed.

The proteins are indispensable for a variety of tasks. Among other things, they are needed for cell regeneration and tissue formation, and they are also crucial for muscle growth. Low-protein malnutrition can have risky consequences for both humans and animals.
