Article 220. Recycling.

1. Unless otherwise provided by the contract, the ownership of a new movable thing, manufactured by a person through the processing of materials not belonging to him, shall be acquired by the owner of the materials. However, if the cost of processing significantly exceeds the cost of materials, ownership of the new thing is acquired by a person who, acting in good faith, carried out processing for himself. 2. Unless otherwise provided by the contract, the owner of the materials who acquired ownership of the thing made from them is obliged to reimburse the cost of processing to the person who carried it out, and in the case of acquiring ownership of the new thing by this person, the latter is obliged to compensate the owner of the materials for their cost. 3. The owner of the materials, who have lost them as a result of unfair actions of the person who carried out the processing, has the right to demand the transfer of a new thing to his property and compensation for losses caused to him.
