RESHAPING BY NATURE

Reshaping means converting unusable scraps into new resources.
We are committed to doing this without causing excessive waste, and using renewable energy

Environmental costs

How much plastic is there in the world?

On a global level, the production of plastic increases at a rate of 9%

Aper year and is now around 300 million tonnes overall, of which 60 tonnes are produced in Europe

What is the cost for the environment?

To produce 1,000 kg of virgin plastic you need:
900 l of petroleum, 180,000 l of water and 14,000 kWh of power.

To recycle 1,000 kg of plastic post consumption you need::
2,000 Kg of used plastic, 1000 l of water and 950 kWh of power.

To recycle 1,000 kg of plastic from the post-industrial scraps you need::
1,000 Kg of plastic from industrial scraps, 80 l of water, and 220 kWh of power

…what does it all mean?

In the short term the plastic that is non-biodegradable becomes waste. It accumulates in landfills or is sent to incinerators – with scarce energy returns– generating enormous costs in terms of waste management and environmental costs.

Why recycle?

Industrial scraps are likely to go along the same path: recycling is the best strategy to reduce the environmental impact of managing plastic

Your choice
