Raccorderie Metalliche, a leading international manufacturer of press fittings and with a modern production plant in Mantova in Italy, benefits from Orwak balers in its waste management and sustainability ambitions. The balers were delivered by the Italian Orwak distributor Empress 2000.
Waste compaction – caring for the environment
As part of its commitment to protect and safeguard the environment, Raccorderie Metalliche has invested in balers to compact plastic, cardboard and undifferentiated waste.
“One of our corporate objectives includes the reduction of direct and indirect environmental impacts, and having introduced compaction in the waste cycle goes precisely in this direction”.
Numerous baler benefits
By compacting the waste and packaging material, the number of trips to transport of material from the warehouse to the plant, where the recycling takes place, are considerably decreased and consequently fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced, as well as less traffic on the road.
Recycling is one of the most important actions to reduce the consumption of resources through the use of end-of-life products, for their transformation into raw materials to be used in production processes. Packaging materials, such as paper, cardboard and plastic, are among the most easily recyclable products as long as they arrive, correctly differentiated, at the appropriate supply chains.
The purchase of balers is therefore an investment of great ecological value, but this investment also has a beneficial economic impact as thanks to the compaction of waste space, time, handling and transport costs are saved.
