The times in which recycled plastic or secondary raw materials could be used for manufacturing only a few products are long gone now. The Systalen recyclate has made a vital contribution here, since this secondary raw material is versatile in use, and in comparison to primary raw materials already reduces the environmental impact involved during the production process, thanks to a closed loop for plastics, the significantly lower energy consumption and far lower CO2 emission values and pollutant emissions. Recycled plastic produced on the basis of Systalen is significantly eco-friendlier than plastics made from primary raw materials like oil. Depending on the type of plastic involved, CO2 emissions alone are reduced by half compared to the production of “new merchandise”. This means that not only does the Systalen recyclate cut the consumption of important resources, Der Grüne Punkt and the Systalen customers are also making a substantial proactive contribution towards climate protection and environmental conservation.
