Advancing Eco-Friendly Practices in Packaging
Using pelletized plastic strapping in manufacturing packaging allows us much-needed sustainability. Currently, many companies are taking care of reducing the environmental impact of their activity.
Within it, the product’s packaging includes safety measures for customers’ peace of mind. Every company’s fundamental axis is to make them arrive at optimal conditions for the consumer.
For this reason, sustainability is a crucial issue when discussing packaging and merchandise movement. Remember that palletizing consists of using a pallet as a base to accommodate the merchandise for its subsequent transfer.
The products are firm and safe for transportation. Through expanded polypropylene strapping, we achieve both tasks: we use eco-friendly material to ensure the merchandise arrives intact. Pelletized plastic strapping is the answer the packaging industry found sustainable.
The importance of plastic pelletized strapping in sustainability
Pelletized plastic strapping is an ecological and sustainable solution for effectively fastening merchandise. Strapping plays a crucial role in the packaging process.
We will explain below why it is fundamental to your company’s logistics. In addition, we will tell you the benefits you get when using them.
A. Description of the pelletizing process and its relevance in the industry
Is the use of pelletized plastic strapping so important? The answer to this question lies in knowing these straps’ use and multiple advantages. Thanks to them, the goods can:
- Group and compact for correct transfer regardless of its size.
- Fix and secure the pallet that will transport them without the possibility of spilling or dispersing.
- Be sealed for transfer by any method.
- Quickly move from one site to another because they are grouped and secured, avoiding unnecessary efforts by staff.
In short, thanks to strapping in the pelleting of your merchandise, you ensure its arrival at its destination in optimal conditions. They are resistant, do not break down or are affected by changes in temperature, and are flexible. Pelletized plastic strapping provides one more extra benefit: it is eco-friendly and does not harm the environment.
B. Waste reduction and recyclability of plastic strapping
Another advantage of this type of strapping is that its base material is recyclable. Polypropylene (PP) is eco-friendly and reusable, so being recyclable significantly reduces environmental waste.
Likewise, less energy uses in the process for production and reuse. Less pollution, saving energy and resources are some benefits of using pp in plastic.
C. Economic advantages of using pelletized plastic strapping
It is 100% reusable. The material does not waste since it can reuse after recycling. Thanks to its flexibility and easy implementation, it optimizes the packaging process. There will be no more spills of goods or difficulties in storing them. Avoiding this type of inconvenience is a saving for your company.
Pelletizing Machinery and its Relationship with Sustainability
The pelletizing machines are the ones that are in charge of accommodating the goods already packaged on the pallets. Thanks to technology, this process is automated.
The machinery that fulfills this function also allows for the care of the environment. It means the entire pelletizing process is sustainable. Next, we will explain how these machines improve packaging and respect for the environment.
A. Functionalities and advantages of the pelletizing machinery in terms of sustainability
The pelletizing machinery has functionalities that make this process a sustainable option. Among them, we can mention the following:
- Automation: it is a process carried out by machinery. Therefore, it requires less human labor. It can derive from other company sectors, thus optimizing human resources.
- It does not require special care regarding environmental conditions: when this task carries out by personnel, specific issues such as ambient temperature and good lighting, among other things, have to be taken care of. That is no longer necessary because the machines do not need it.
- Less energy consumption and more excellent task performance: they do not require extraordinary energy consumption, and the pelleting task is carried out in less time.
These functionalities lead us to realize that these pelletizing machines collaborate with sustainability. We provide more details below to understand the scope and benefits of this process.
B. Energy efficiency and reduction of CO2 emissions
These pelletizing machines perform the task in less time, using the necessary resources and without requiring special environmental conditions (special lighting or ambient temperature control).
In this way, they manage to carry out the process with optimal energy consumption. By making this energy-saving, we can also reduce CO2 emissions. Undoubtedly, these characteristics guarantee care for the environment.
C. Improvement in productivity and optimization of resources
Pelletizing machinery performs the task in less time, optimizing the necessary resources. They are managed by straightforward software that does not require special knowledge.
They control the whole process, covering the client’s needs. Thanks to that, we can avoid errors that generate a loss of merchandise. It improves productivity.
D. Saving natural resources by using recycled materials to manufacture plastic strapping.
We must remember that pelletized plastic strapping uses in these processes. As mentioned, the machinery is sustainable, and the expanded polypropylene strapping is reusable.
They are recycled repeatedly, recovering all their gripping capacity and original qualities. Thus, saving natural resources is achieved throughout the process, guaranteeing the highest quality of the raw material used.
Take advantage of the benefits of pelletized plastic strapping
Using pelletized plastic strapping to pack and move merchandise has multiple advantages. A company that operates this process obtains the following:
- Packaging in which your products accommodate optimally.
- Safe and firm packaging with expanded polypropylene strapping guarantees a perfect hold.
- A durable packaging that does not rust as occurs with other materials.
- Packaging tailored to the needs of your products.
In addition, we must consider the benefits obtained by using a sustainable process:
- Energy saving.
- Material savings.
- Savings in resources.
