Energy Optimization: a quality fuel
The homogeneity of materials collected (more than 90% of high density polyethylene) and their high calorific value make valuable combustion additives, when mixed with other waste of a lesser calorific nature. In 2006, 58% of all
packaging collection was used as substitute fuels in cement factory ovens.
Material Optimization : the second life of packaging
Plastic materials can be reused after regeneration. The recycled products are comparable to other products in terms of effectuation, quality and price. With the increase in volumes and materials collected, the use of these recycled products has multiplied in all sectors of activity.
For example, Big Bags made from Polypropylene can be used to make baskets and plant pots for horticulture, storage and handling boxes for businesses and organizations, and building materials...
To date, 80% of used packaging, collected by ADIVALOR, is recycled.
