Recycling

Reduce, re-use, recycle, recover: Our material's mantra

We know that environmental sustainability is not only important to customers. It has also become a governing principle when it comes to corporate sustainability commitments. And the recyclability of a product usually is one of its major requirements - which airpop® meets easily.

Did you know?

airpop® can be recycled several times without deterioration. Thanks to recycling airpop® products come to life over and over again. In terms of waste, we are committed to our four favourite Rs: Reduce, re-use, recycle, recover.

Reduce – it is astounding how versatile airpop® is for a wide range of packaging needs. With an optimised pack design, manufacturers reduce the airpop® content to a minimum. This reduces the environmental impact and costs.

Re-use – airpop® is durable. Thermo boxes for warm food or special packaging for medicines, for example. They are so stable and resistant that they can demonstrate their excellent properties over and over again.

Recycle – airpop® packaging can be easily recycled allowing you to be ready for the next task. And it continues to go from strength to strength in new packaging techniques. Or it can be used to produce new plastics and have a new life in coat hangers, parkbenches and, and, and…

Recover –airpop® packaging can also be used in modern thermal heat and power plants for the production of district heating. During this thermal recycling process, 1 kg of airpop® replaces 1.4 litres of fuel oil.

Many airpop® production facilities offer collection points where material can be placed for recycling. Adding recycled material in the production process improves the environmental performance of the whole operation significantly.
