waste pureloop

Skymark Packaging has long held a desire to conserve our environment. We produce innovative packaging solutions, efficiency projects and next level working methods. Whenever we explore a possibility to improve, we endeavour to involve our work force or (wherever possible) local companies that share the same philosophy as Skymark, reducing unnecessary carbon emissions associated with travel and logistics.

The Pureloop project is another fine example of our philosophy. Together with our project partners at Pureloop in Austria, and in line with our commitment to “Operation Clean Sweep”, Skymark continue to tirelessly work to improve its recycling rates of plastic.

Our partners at Pureloop have enabled us to provide a closed loop waste solution to ensure our objectives are achievable “Recycle and re-use as much of our Plastic Packaging Waste as possible”
Housed within a purpose-built environment, our Pureloop unit significantly contributes to a dramatic reduction in Waste materials, as well as allowing us to contribute to the wider societal good by recycling plastic packaging materials.

The project enables us to offer a closed loop recycling solution to not only address production over-makes and associated materials at Skymark, but also offer our clients the peace of mind and assurance that we can offer a fully controlled and licenced recycling route for their post-industrial plastic waste stream(s). With Plastics receiving weekly headline news, we are proud to say that we have recycled over 450t of plastic Packaging between January and September 2019 which would otherwise have been sent to landfill or used as Refuse derived Fuel.

Instead, we have recycled the material into usable pellets which can be used in a controlled manner to displace virgin plastic use, thus significantly reducing the impact on the environment. Our Next step? Simple – Significantly beat this year’s figures. Skymark and Pureloop – a beautifully symbiotic relationship, not just another grind…
