Maximize environmental efficiency – Minimize environmental impact

Wellplast AB tries to have a holistic approach to environmental awareness, both in terms of packaging solutions to customers and internal issues.


“Even the packaging affects the environment” is a somewhat provocative statement, but it is a lot in it. The need to manufacture a new product because it is damaged during transport or storage usually results in a very high environmental impact. Therefore, the leading keyword of Wellplast AB’s packaging developer is a function.
Goal two is to minimize the amount of material in each solution. The sellers task is then to try to influence the customer in the right direction in terms of logistics and waste management.


Internally, the company strives for continuous environmental improvements in all areas. Wellplast AB is ISO 14001-2015 certified and works very actively to reduce our environmental impact.

  • Maximum protection

    Design packaging that protects well and minimizes cassation

  • Maximize filling ratio

    Minimizes the environmental impact of transports

  • Reuse

    Promote reusable packaging where it is an environmental advantage

  • Minimize the amount of material used

    Minimize the amount of material used by choosing the right material

  • Minimize waste

    Less waste in all joints – from design, material production and conversion

  • Recycle

    Our strive is that production waste and used packaging shall be recycled

  • Wellplast AB buys back used packaging

    In order to increase the recovery of Wellplast packaging and secure raw material availability, a repurchase program has been started. This means that we buy back used packagings. These packages are washed and grinded so that they can be used in the production of Wellplast R (Recycled) made of recycled material. We therefore offer customers a repurchase program for the recycling of used materials. Here it is important that the sorting works well and the filling rate of the used packaging is good enough for an environmentally efficient transport to us.

Recycling

Next to reuse of packaging, we have a strong focus on recycling. Wellplast AB today recovers 95% of all production waste for new materials and the target is 100%. Another goal is to recycle customers used packaging as much as possible. We therefore offer customers a repurchase program for the recycling of used materials. Here it is important that the sorting works well and the filling rate of the used packaging is good enough for an environmentally efficient transport.

Waste sorting

Sorting options vary depending on where and in which industry the packages are used. Wellplast AB tries to influence its customers to reach as high as possible on the sorting staircase. Of course, the environmental impact of the transport is taken into account.

1. Wellplast® (Recycling)
2. Hard Plastic (Recycling)
3. Soft plastic (Recycling or combustion)
4. Combustible
5. Unsorted

When combustion (energy recovery) is the only option, the residual products become CO2 and water. The energy value in the material is high.
Wellplast AB is a member of the recycling system FTI

Marking
The Wellplast® material is labeled 05 for polypropylene according to SIS standard 6120.

Degradability and Bio plastics
The standard Wellplast® material is not biodegradable but as other plastic materials it is slowly degraded by UV radiation (sunlight). Wellplast AB has also developed Bio-degradeble material.   Bioplastics can be offered (plastic with a biological origin such as sugar cane).
