Many things can be recycled during foil converter processing, but below we will mention some of the best waste that can be recycled are:
- Aluminum Cans
Among the dry ones, aluminum cans are the champions of recycling. In 2016, 98.14% of them were reused globally, while the world average is 75%. In 2014, nearly 300,000 tons of cans were sold, and another 289,500 were recycled.
All this success is mainly because aluminum can be infinitely recycled and maintains almost the same quality as the primary material. In addition, its collection and compaction are straightforward, and the quantity of cans is abundant throughout the national territory, without seasonal interruptions.
- Paper And Cardboard
In the paper and cardboard sector, unlike what happens in the others, manufacturers also end up acting as recyclers, integrating a trading system for scraps that has long been well established. Much of this recycling work is still done informally: according to the annual report (2013-2014)
In the plastics team, the PET bottle is the material that stands out the most. According to experts, an experiment conducted in 2016, 28.6% of the companies that make up the recycling industry use PET to produce unsaturated and alkyd resins; 25.7% transform it into textile products and new packaging; the rest is divided between sheets and plates, adhesive tapes and other products.
In conclusion, most of the companies in the world that do not comply with the requirements regarding reverse logistics and recycling practices, in addition to harming the environment and the population as a whole, are subject to fines by the government. As an essential part of world society and economy, organizations are also responsible for preventing materials from being incorrectly disposed of or turned into garbage when reused or reused.
To avoid inconvenience, companies can resort to ISO 14001 certification, updated in 2015. The international standard provides for the implementation of an Environmental Management System (SGA) to plan consistent actions, prevent and control significant impacts on nature, manage risks and improve environmental performance and productivity, in addition to monitoring companies’ compliance with the law.
