We offer solutions to protect our environment.
Sustainability is in our name.
The impact that a thermoplastic product has on our environment encompasses everything from its feedstock, design, polymer material, manufacturing process, shipping, and end use to its final resting place. Enviroplas engineers are vigilant in providing sustainable material options and supply chain efficiencies such as energy conservation, right-sizing to enhance lightweighting and to decrease waste, and transportation security to protect our environment without jeopardizing the characteristics of the product.
Developing sustainable compounds
Incorporating sustainability opportunities into an application are at the outset, client-driven, depending upon the project objectives. As the product development process unfolds, our Enviroplas Research & Development team searches for environmentally-friendly opportunities such as reducing scrap by right-sizing the resin compound with the manufacturing process.
“Each additive in our resin compounds is assessed for its safety, regulatory, and sustainability requirements to perpetuate the “circular economy” for plastics.”
An Enviroplas engineered polymer is a sustainable option to mechanical recycling
Mechanical or traditional recycling involves the collection, sorting, grinding, washing, drying, re-granulating, and compounding of plastic waste. The challenges with this “closed loop” recycling effort is the lack of structural and performance integrity of the material as well as the intensive labor and energy outlays required to complete the process. Mechanically recycled material has its advantages, but it also has many drawbacks. More often than not, using refurbished waste for your application may be more expensive and less environmentally sustainable than developing an Enviroplas engineered compound.
