Plastic recycling network in the poultry equipment industry
Plastic is a product with an infinite number of uses in poultry farming that can be reused with a recycling network.
In the last decades, plastic is a product that has gained great importance in the daily life of people all over the world. In addition, it has allowed the creation of an endless number of components, utensils, and equipment that have improved the lives of mankind. This innovative material has been used in the medical field, in the transportation of goods, in communication equipment, textile design, livestock facilities, foodstuffs, and many other items.
Currently, the poultry industry is also using many plastics to make production processes more hygienic, efficient, and economical. The characteristics of plastics make them easy to manufacture, simple to handle, hygienic, and highly adaptable.
The characteristics of plastic
Plastic has a remarkable feature correlated to the possibility of creating a recycling network in its cycle to reuse it. This is correlated with the responsible and sustainable use of plastic in the industrial and livestock sector, according to the environmental expectations and legal conditions required by each country.
In addition, there is a massive campaign for urgent recycling, which mitigates the environmental impact and reduces production costs. To this aim, a classification has been created to identify plastics in the world and to organize the recycling and utilization processes.
- PET or polyethylene terephthalate: This type of plastic is used for the manufacture of light packaging such as liquid containers. Its recycling allows it to be converted into textile garments, tarpaulins, ropes, and new containers.
- HDPE or high-density polyethylene: This plastic is used in containers that are not transparent, so it is used for the manufacture of boxes, containers, containers, tubes, bottles. It has a high resistance to corrosive products and deterioration.
- PVC or polyvinyl chloride: PVC is one of the most important materials in the manufacture of products for construction, installations, and piping.
- LDPE or Low-Density Polyethylene: This plastic is used for the manufacture of thin and flexible products such as bags or insulators. After recycling, it can be used to manufacture furniture, pipes, or insulation.
- PP or Polypropylene: PP can be recycled to manufacture products such as chairs, transport containers, containers, and household products.
- PS or Polystyrene: this material is used to manufacture food containers, food trays, and egg containers. It is characterized by its resistance to hot products and its hygiene.
This classification allows companies to recover plastics for recycling and use according to the base material. In addition, a new use can be given to these materials to provide solutions for the poultry industry.
Giordano Poultry Plast’s recycling is sustainable and efficient
The raw material for Giordano Poultry Plast products is plastic. Therefore, for years the company has adopted efficient and sustainable mechanisms to create a recycling network and reuse it. Plastic is a resistant, sustainable, and profitable material when mechanisms are implemented for its recovery and the creation of new products.
On the other hand, plastics designed and used in the poultry industry are identified as materials with a long shelf life. In addition, these products do not disperse in the environment, so they do not generate contamination during their use. For these reasons, there is a market opportunity correlated to the recovery of these plastic products that have completed their production cycle to manufacturing new ones through a recycling network.
Giordano Poultry Plast’s customers can hand in their end-of-life plastic equipment to the company. Then, Giordano Poultry Plast implements its sustainable and efficient recycling mechanisms at its plants in Italy. In this way, recycled materials are processed under strict industrial and sanitary protocols to be transformed into new equipment for the poultry industry. This process contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that would be created if the plastics were not recycled.
Giordano Poultry Plast’s recycling network
The utilization of plastic at Giordano Poultry Plast includes different phases, from the conception, design, and manufacture of products from this raw material. This work is done directly with the plastic thanks to the extensive knowledge of the company’s specialized areas.
In addition, the solution of technical and practical needs in the poultry farming sector is an opportunity for the plastics sector. For this reason, innovative, high-performance solutions are constantly being proposed to reduce costs and create products with extended durability and resistance.
The principles of circular economy are applied by Giordano Poultry Plast during the production processes and plastic recycling network. For this reason, it relies on Giordano Energy, a company within the group that provides sufficient energy to carry out the industrial recycling processes. In this way, no fossil fuels are used, but energy is created from vegetable and animal fat.
In addition, Giordano Energy guarantees a 24/7 operation that, thanks to its 70 employees, can transform about 9,500 tons of plastic every year.
Plastic is one of the most important raw materials in the world today in the industrial sectors, including poultry within the livestock area. This material has particularities that give it remarkable advantages for its use in tasks related to transportation, storage, food, and veterinary medicine.
Currently, plastic is one of the most widely used products worldwide. For this reason, the opportunity has arisen for manufacturers to recover these materials for their use. In this way, Giordano Poultry Plast has created a recycling network where it recovers plastic materials that have completed their production cycle and can be reused.
For the recycling network, Giordano Poultry Plast recovers the materials and processes them again in Italy where, thanks to its industrial equipment and human talent, it can manufacture new products. In this way, it contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to environmentally sustainable solutions.
