The linear “extract, manufacture, consume, dispose” system on which our current economic model is based is running out of time, as natural resources become increasingly rare. But an economic model that can meet the need for sustainable growth does exist: the circular economy. The circular economy encourages recycling and significantly reduces consumption and waste of raw materials.

I made the choice to shift to this model by creating waste sorting and recycling turnkey solutions in 1995.
I am proud that AKTID has become a major player in this new economy.

And I am also proud that AKTID has become a modern company where everyone has room to grow and find fulfilment through a shared commitment.

Pierre André Payerne


The Payerne family, which traces its roots to the French and Italian Alps, has been in business for several generations.
Pierre-André joined the family business, manufacturing equipment for metal scrap processing, in 1995.
He developed a new branch of the company: mixed-waste processing facility engineering.

He went on to found his own company, AKTID, in 2005, to help the business achieve its full potential.

Since its creation, AKTID has seen constant growth and is now recognized as a major player in turnkey mixed-waste processing facility design and execution.

AKTID is now building on its name-recognition and its experience to expand into the international market.


AKTID has unique long-term experience in designing, building and operating mixed-waste processing facilities.

Since 1995, the AKTID teams have supported their customers throughout their projects of modifying existing lines or creating new installations, from design to solution to start-up.

AKTID achieves these results through its structured industrial organization and a proven systematic approach that guarantee optimal financial results.

Thanks to feedback from the teams and its international network of historic industrial partners, AKTID’s teams are constantly improving the reliability and performance of its solutions.
