We reduce CO2 emissions by incorporating recycled materials into our products
The standard ISO 14021 defines recycled content as “the proportion, by mass, of recycled material in a product or packaging”.
Our goal is to prevent plastic waste from ending up in landfills or abandoned in places where it doesn’t belong. By recycling, we mean plastic waste that returns to the value chain after a transformation process, making the circularity of plastics possible. For this reason, we are committed to their reincorporation into our production process.
Mechanical or chemical
The transformation of plastic waste can be carried out through a mechanical or chemical process. These processes complement each other since chemical recycling is complementary to mechanical recycling by treating the fractions of plastic waste that the mechanical process cannot.
It is an alternative with a more economical process and with greater savings in CO₂ emissions that allows obtaining recycling with good performance depending on the quality of the waste. This process involves prior separation and cleaning, and the resulting products are not suitable for food contact.
What products do we use in mechanical recycling?
Recovered from the waste stream during a manufacturing process before being consumed.
Generated by end-users for domestic use or by commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities.
Chemical recycling complements mechanical recycling by treating the fractions of plastic waste that the mechanical process cannot.
In chemical recycling, polymer molecules are broken down into raw materials (monomers). This process allows petrochemical companies to manufacture new plastics through new polymerization processes, among other things.
The most widely used chemical recycling technique is Pyrolysis, which is thermal depolymerization using heat and without chemical reagents.
Chemical recycling advantages
- Food contact
- Complementary to mechanical recycling
- Same technical performance as virgin raw material
- It doesn’t require the previous separation of waste
