Zero plastic pellet and dust loss: the goal of all High Performance Polymers Business Area facilities and plants
During the past months, all the production plants of the RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers Business Area have signed a formal pledge to become an Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) Partner. The OCS is an international programme supported by industry associations* all over the world and designed to prevent plastic pellet and powder loss into the environment. The special focus is on materials handling and transport operations, from the arrival of raw materials to the departure of semi-finished products to be delivered to customers.
“The problem of the release of plastics into the environment.“ stressed Danilo Micheletti, COO of RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers, “is being tackled by our industry through awareness raising actions and initiatives designed and implemented over time, which require real commitment on the part of the companies involved in the value supply chain. Our Group has also taken on this challenge – which has reached global dimensions – by joining various industry association initiatives, one of which is Operation Clean Sweep.”
Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is an industrial programme that involves the whole value chain, including transport and logistics. RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers has decided to join the initiative on a voluntary basis, incorporating it as part of the Group’s Sustainability Policy. Indeed, RadiciGroup has long made the principle of sustainable development its business strategy by measuring and reporting on the environmental impact of its processes and products, in order to attain continuous improvement in all its business areas.
