We are committed to the plastics circular economy
Our company is fully committed to our values. We are keen to show every day what we are able to create. Walki Plasbel aims to produce the packaging of the future from recycled and recyclable materials.
Sustainability is important to us. We want to grow while keeping our values and goals, enhancing circular economy.
At Walki Plasbel we are raising social awareness and environmental responsibility through an optimized management of our manufacturing process as well as maximizing the performance of available resources. We reduce waste generation and production residues are processed to be reused and transformed into a new recycled material that will be exploited and reintroduced into the market.
This sets up a continuous development cycle in which the materials and products obtained have a longer lifespan.
Thanks to the transformation process used to recycle material in our Walki Plasbel recycling plant, we manage waste in an efficient way, saving on raw material and ensuring the sustainability of our product.
By constantly innovating, we have developed plastic recycling processes that allowed Walki Plasbel to increase the use of post-consumer recycled material by 46% in 2020. We have produced 17,936 tonnes of recycled material (more than 27% compared to 2019). This amount of tonnes is more or less equivalent to the weight of 18,000 conventional cars, and we are looking to set a new record this year!
Investments for a better future
We aim for further growth. In 2021, we expanded our recycling plant with another state-of-the-art mechanical industrial recycling machine to transform plastic waste and by-products into reusable material.
Plasbel’s investments focus on 4 main elements:
Use of post-consumer recycled material
Manufacturing with compostable biodegradable material
Lamibel®MDO Monomaterial Solutions
We extend the use of materials
Re-Plastics are products made from recycled material. We have optimized and high-tech extruders to ensure excellent and consistent product quality.
At Walki Plasbel we manage waste in an efficient way, saving on raw materials and reusing the by-products generated during our production process, such as wrappers, packaging, waste, etc., which are all transformed into a new recycled raw material in our Walki Plasbel plant.
Circular Economy Advantages
Reduction in resource and energy use
Contributing to the fight against climate change
Towards Zero Waste Future
At Walki Plasbel we have a solvent distiller that collects, recycles and recovers 100% of the used solvents. We exploit our recycled solvents for another use. So, the solvent is cleaned and reused indefinitely.
To achieve the Zero Waste commitment, we collaborate with authorized outside managers to process in a sustainable way the following materials that need special treatment, a waste turns into a new resource.
Paper and Cardboard
Waste PET, polypropylene, compostable
ZERO waste in
Through our recycling plant, we make maximum use of the raw materials used. We recycle and reuse 100% of the waste generated. Moreover, they are reused in other products and put back on the market.
ZERO waste in
Eco-design and innovation
We have taken actions to improve the product environmental impact during its design stage. From the selection of raw materials with less environmental impact to the packaging optimization using high technology during the production process to improve shipment. In addition, we foster reuse and recycling.
We optimize the use of ink and glue consumption
All the ink used are recycled, transformed into a new ink through our Ink Dispenser system. In addition we save approximately 30% in printing (CMYK) using high-tech polymer and in the end, we get a more convincing result compared to other printing machines on the market.
Compostable bags are made with plant-based polymers and sustainably managed following the Circular Economy process
A versatile and innovative compostable raw material, these renewable materials have zero negative effects on the composting process.
At Walki Plasbel we will always have a sustainable solution that suits every retailer and their needs. Our biodegradable compostable bags are made from compostable raw materials made from plant-based polymer (EN13432: 2000). Once their lifespan is over, they biodegrade within a compostable environment, contributing to the development of significant advantages throughout the production-consumption-disposal process and being used in their last phase for the production of agricultural fertilisers with their decomposition process.
The OK compost HOME certificate proves that our products achieve a biodegradation level of at least 90% within 12 months of home-composting (±20-30ºC).
This certificate proves that our products achieve a biodegradation level of at least 90% within 6 months in an industrial composting plant (±58ºC).
The OK Biobased certificate proves that our biobased products have a biobased content of between 40% and 60%.
