Reusing production materials
reducing new plastic
Modiform is committed to reusing production materials where possible. By recycling internally, reusing products, and opting for recyclable materials, we can preserve our raw materials. Over the past 30 years, we have been able to drastically reduce our start-up loss in the production of our films. Each year, we grind and reuse 750,000 kilograms of start-up materials.
Even after making the film, we continue to use our materials efficiently. All the trimmings are re-ground and incorporated in our production process once more. In this way, we process 2,600,000 kilograms of cutting waste per year. The equivalent of more than 100 lorries!
And finally, even our ‘polluted’ recycled plastic – that has been separated by the sieves – is not wasted. These 100,000 kilograms per year are not incinerated or thrown away but are cleaned by our partners to create other products. The constant reuse of recyclable production materials saves many kilograms of new material and thus contributes to closing the material loop.
