There are 6 different terms which we are using more often for circular economy. These are Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Remanufacture, Recycle and Recovery FIBCs are the packaging solutions which you can easily entegrate to circular economy to find a solution that tackles global changes. You can Reuse or Recycle the FIBCs. FIBCs are reusable since they are so durable as long as you take care of them and clean them correctly. This means lower storage cost for your company and support for protecting green envrionment. A standard FIBC has a safety factor of 5:1, meaning it can hold 5 times the amount of its safe working load. These bags are classified as single-use bags. If you wish to reuse a bag, you will need one with a higher safety factor ratio of 6:1. These are suitable for multiple uses and therefore add to the sustainability of your supply chain. FIBCs are recycable because they are made almost entirely of plastic. If they can no longer be safely reused, you can recycle the bags in order to keep more plastics out of landfills and the environment. Recycling is one of the most important steps of Circular Economy. We would like to inform you that we have started to produce 30 % rPP bags in our Indian factory. We will start to produce 30 % rPP bags in Turkey also in near future. As opposed to the conventional 100% virgin PP bags, 30% rPP bags are made of 30% of recycled polypropylene and 70% virgin polypropylene, making them one of the eco-friendliest options available in the market. These bags feature the same flexibility, strength and safety as traditional FIBC bags but are limited in their availability.
This is one of the best ways to reduce a company’s environmental carbon footprint while delivering safe and reliable storage solutions for business. With global tax reforms on plastic products in place, we need to move towards a more sustainable and economical option of bulk bags. Any restrictions by your government due to plastic tax, can be covered by using our 30 % rPP s.
How FIBCs are recycled?
1.Collection: The process starts with proper collection.
2.Sorting and cleaning: As FIBCs are used to carry for a wide range of materials, it is necessary to sorting and cleaning them.During this process all zips and buttons also should be removed.
3.Shredding: The next step is shredding the bags into small flakes in order to make them less complicated to handle for further processes.
4.Separation: During this process plastic polymer is differentiated from impurities and contaminants which can be separated by color shape size melting point and light absorbtion
5.Compounding: This is the final stage which extruders melt down the ground-up material at 240 degrees Celsius and creating pellets or granules of plastics. These pellets and granules are used in new products, and the mixture is strengthened through the addition of virgin polypropylene.
