Integral solutions for plastic packaging waste
Knauf Industries, through its 360 Total Pack System solution, provides its customers with high quality custom packaging to protect and transport their most precious products. These packaging used in packaging, thanks to its great customization and precision when coating a particular product, can generate a large volume of material when it comes to recycling waste production. However, you will be amazed to know that, in packaging, only 2% of raw material is used, that is, expanded polystyrene, but 98% of the volume is air!
Managing these large volumes of material to be able to recycle and revalue that 2% expanded polystyrene can mean a challenge for the producer committed to the environment that must transport and dispose of it. That is why Knauf Industries decided to support all its customers through a collaboration agreement with Mil-tek.
Mil-tek specializes in the application of the LEANcompacting concept as a method to rationalize and optimize waste management. It uses mechanical systems that eliminate excess air and reduce up to 98% of the initial volume. In this way, the association is the solution to achieve that the plastic waste of packaging is transformed into material ready to start a new life after being recycled and reused, in line with the concept of circular economy
Both companies intend to provide their customers with the management of plastic packaging waste and thus collaborate in closing the production circle, so that the value of products, materials and resources are maintained in the economy, minimizing the generation of waste. Now it is easier to recycle expanded polystyrene!
