Plastics are instrumental to move from a linear economy model to a circular economy model. For plastic pipes resource efficiency is key. At the end of their useful life – generally more than 100 years – plastic pipes become a valuable raw material. Plastic pipe producers optimize the use of raw materials to ensure highest product quality with lowest ecological footprint. On top, projects support stopping accidental raw material spills in operations and handling.
In addition to the numerous benefits of the plastic pipe systems there is also a strong and reliable scientific evidence that, in general plastic pipe systems offer a lower product environmental footprint than the alternative materials.
Reducing Plastic Pellet Loss to the Environment. Operation Clean Sweep® is an international initiative from the plastics industry to reduce plastic pellet loss to the environment.
