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. The initiative’s aim is to ensure that the plastic pellets, flakes and powders that pass through manufacturing facilities are handled with care and do not end up in our rivers or seas. TEPPFA commits to have all operational sites of its member companies in EU Operation Clean Sweep compliant by 2021.
Operation Clean Sweep® helps your company ensure that plastic pellets are contained on-site, shows your company’s commitment to the environment and highlights to others that you are a responsible manufacturer.
