For Global Recycling Day, Aliaxis in New Zealand partners with customer SWE.
While being committed to the net zero targets for 2050, Aliaxis is focusing on the environment with urgent actions that will pay off in the short term. Our target is to significantly increase the share of recycled content in our products by 2025. And to make a bigger impact on society overall, we’re working by the side of our customers so that they achieve their own sustainability goals.
In New Zealand, we have partnered with the water engineering and management firm SWE to recycle PVC plastic waste from vineyards in the country’s Marlborough region. Our teams have integrated this plastic into the manufacturing of our solutions, increasing the total percentage of recycled material in our products. Future projects include collecting PE products that will be reground into pellets that can be used into new products.
The process reduces waste to landfill from these products by an impressive 99% and gives us better access to the recycled material we want to use in our products. Given this initial success, we are exploring options to scale this project to a national level for all our clients
