”To use recycled raw materials is obviously an environmental benefit”
We live in a world where we have the possibility to positively influence our surrounding environment. It therefore feels very good and satisfying to know that Rondo can offer a product with a clear environmental benefit. It is also very satisfying and pleasant to see that more and more companies see this possibility and appreciate the chance to choose a raw material with such a great environmental benefit.
REPRO & REZYcom products are always based on more than 50% recycled plastic raw material. Many of the products contain 100% recycled plastic raw material. The concentration of recycled plastic raw material is mainly determined by the quality aspect. For certain recipes, particular components may be more difficult to quality assure when it concerns recycled plastic raw material. We never compromise on quality. When necessary, we use new material to ensure that we always have the right quality level.
A question we often hear is how large is the environmental benefit when recycled raw material is used instead of new? Here is a little example. With unfilled polypropylene, the use of 1 ton of recycled plastic results in a reduction of CO2 emissions equivalent to more than 7,000 km of driving in a medium size car that releases 140 g CO2 per km. This example shows that we can influence the environment through more thoughtful choices!
