We would like all big bags (FIBC) to be completely white and connected to RFR. This would be good, but is not always possible. We offer a chance to choose the next best alternative, loops which have a reduction of colour between 70-80%. We can offer this solution in many different colours and we are happy to help our customers to update their big bags.
The major benefit of choosing loops to big bags which have only 20-30% dye is that the recycled plastic from the big bag can be used in products that are not grey or black. If all big bags to be recycled are completely white they are classified as quality A. With quality A recycled plastic we can produce new, completely white big bags, which is our goal. If we can transform big bags classified as class C to be class B by reducing the amount of colour in the design of the big bag, we have already made an improvement.
It is important in our role as manufacturer to design big bags enabling the recycling process to work. The customer also needs to interact in the design process to help find better alternatives. If we all assist by making smaller improvements, we will succeed in developing better products for the market. We follow the recommendations of The Procurement Authority regarding sustainable plastic procurement. This makes it easier for the customer to get the right design from the start.
One of the advantages of these loops is the economical benefit for our customers. Completely white, or mostly white loops, are much stronger in comparison to coloured loops. It is also possible to use the recycled plastic with colour for the bags, which is entirely possible for traceability in the fabric as well. We have many solutions and to be able to help you further contact us for advice.
