- Calcium carbonate as an extender that can reduce costs
Recycled Plastic Packaging Consulting
Ocean plastic is one example of how we collaborate with customers develop innovative ideas and new plastic products. We worked with Method® , a California company, to produce the world’s first plastic made from recycled ocean waste. Ocean plastic bottles are made with a blend of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic, a combination that results in a uniquely gray resin. Method is known for innovative design – dish-washing liquid in sleek bowling-pin-shaped bottles, teardrop hand soap bottles, and futuristic-looking mops. In October 2012, Method® introduced its 2-in-1 dish + hand soap packaged in ocean plastic bottles.
Toll processing Industrial Plant Scrap
If your plastics production processes generate significant industrial scrap, we can analyze your processes and help design scrap reclamation techniques, thus reducing your materials cost and applying best sustainability practices.
Through our sister company, Ecoplast Corporation Envision Plastics offers toll processing services allowing molders to reuse own plant scrap and turn clean pelletized material into a product.
