Greyland: moving toward sustainability
Greyland Chemicals' Richard Dyson told us that as part of its continuous strategy to be the 'best in class' in its market sector, it has been working with its bottle supply partner Alpla UK to develop and implement sustainable bottle packaging. As a result, Alpla is shortly to introduce recycled polymer packaging to the industrial chemicals cleaning sector.
Richard said that together, the two have developed and implemented the use of Post-Consumer Recycled polymers which means that:
* The 750ml PET trigger bottle will be produced with a recycled PET inclusion of 50%
* The 5-litre HDPE Jerry Can will be produced with a general grade recycled HDPE inclusion of 25%
Both bottles have been successfully manufactured and are now in the final stages of product testing and qualification.
"Targeting a successful rollout of these recycled materials will ensure that Greyland and Alpla will be meeting the future environmental demands and expectations of retailers and consumers," said Richard (left) with Bona Systems' managing director Steven Phillips (centre) and Principle Cleaning Services' Doug Cooke.
