WE ARE DEDICATED TO
50 years of experience in sustainable plastics production
How do we manage circular economy?
Circular economy is about improving its business economy in a sustainable way. Among other things, we offer our customers to use our mobile grinder at their plant and grind the plastic products that are no longer being used. Later we transport the plastic material back to our production facility, where the old plastic is being melted and manufactured into new products. In this way we can avoid plastics being left in the nature, and at the same time we do not need to buy new raw materials because we are recycling the old plastics.
from trawls to box
SCHOELLER-PLAST-ENTERPREISE A/S has joined a row of other bigger companies and professional organisations about a new big environmental project. The project is supported by MUDP (Miljø- og Fødevareministeriets Miljøtekniske Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram). The goal is to develop and test new types of plastic packaging in 100 per cent recycling plastic that meets the requirements for traceability, purity, and a competitive production. This project is quite exciting, since the new type of plastic packaging will be developed from old fishing trawls and ropes, which has been frayed on the fishing bouts. Therefore this project has appropriately been named ”Oceanbox – trawl to box” and it has a duration of 12 months. During these months a line of technical analyses and production analyses will be conducted, which shall disclose how big a recycling degree we can achieve from the old fishing trawls and ropes.
This project started in the light of the fact that all parties within the project every day experienced a growing demand for circular plastic packaging solutions that are made of 100 per cent recycled plastic. Schoeller Plast has earlier participated in similar development projects, in which we have gained instructive experience in collecting and recycling of plastics from the consumers. At the same time we daily work with circular packaging solutions, and this is why we believe that we can contribute with knowledge about recycled packaging and also production knowhow for this project.
Jan Bybjerg Pedersen, Manager of Sales and Development, is very pleased that Schoeller Plast is part of this project: ”We are especially happy about this cooperation, because we work together with very serious partners, who cover the entire supply chain, and all can see the unique possibilities for us jointly to take the responsibility to use our resources in a new and better way”. And then he adds: ”It is fantastic that we also have a NGO as Plastic Change on the team, because they are able to set the public agenda and visualise the environmental challenges with the huge amounts of waste that natures is exposed to, and this puts even more focus to our common project”.
