At NP Plastics, we see recycling as part of an overall responsible approach to materials and resource management – and as a key essential to safeguard a healthy and profitable future with continued production for our customers.
Our goal is to optimize our operations to achieve the smallest possible ecological footprint.
At NP Plastics, production waste is conveyed to a grinder and, where possible, fed back into the production stream. Beside-the-press granulators efficiently grind all sprues and waste material produced during processing.
At NP Plastics, we also use recycled material derived from post-consumer waste streams for specific applications.
Moreover, we actively follow the ongoing developments in biobased materials, to support our customers in this area, too, in their striving to achieve their sustainability goals.
