Transforming waste into value
Preserving and restoring the planet’s natural capital
We’re offering a new range of recycled plastics
With Plast'lab®, SUEZ wants to work with manufacturers to build "tailored" solutions in order to supply the recycled plastic that meets their needs.
Creating "tailored" recycled plastics
Recycled plastic creates an economic advantage for manufacturers enabling them to improve their energy efficiency and environmental performance. However, as a secondary raw material it must meet precise specifications. So we’ve created the unique Plast’lab® laboratory. Plast’lab® analyses, characterizes and tests the recycled plastics materials in order to formulate new ranges of quality plastics. The goal is to meet the needs of manufacturers (resistance to impacts, heat, etc.) and to anticipate the needs of the future.
It’s a major economic and environmental issue
In the last 50 years, the use of plastic has increased twenty-fold and certain consumer products contain more than 20 different plastic resins. Using recycled plastics cuts energy consumption by 80% to 90% compared to the production of virgin plastic. Taking action to increase the quantity and improve the quality of recycled plastic is a major goal for us.
