AUGUST 2021
Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to the latest 4PLAS newsletter, this month, in light of the seemingly endless war on plastics being waged by the media, we would like to  update  you on our progress on Environmental initiatives and materials.

4PLAS has been a member of Operation Clean Sweep®️  since 2010, this is a global plastic industry initiative to prevent plastic materials, be it pellet, flake or powder, from entering the aquatic environment via any stage of production, storage and transportation. 

These can include various measures such as additional screens to sieve out fine plastic particles on direct water coolant systems used for extruder and pelletiser lines that could otherwise enter drains and sewers, and also managing pellet spills during transportation and storage to ensure none end up in external drains.
EUCertPlast Grades 
EUCertPlast (European Certificate of Plastics Recycling) is a Europe wide initiative and accreditation scheme for plastic recyclers regarding full traceability of materials, and best practice for environmentally friendly post-consumer waste recycling. 

Working with our partner plants, we are pleased to announce that we expect by next month, to be able to offer fully certified grades of recycled PP, HDPE, ABS and HIPS.

For packaging applications these accredited grades with higher than 30% recycled content should be exempt from the new packaging taxes coming into force into the UK in 2022.
Cradle to Cradle Certified (C2C)®️
C2C is a global initiative for the manufacturing of safer, more sustainable products for the circular economy, including material re-utilisation.

We have our grade 4LEX 10F20800 Polycarbonate, made from recycled factory scrap that meets the material re-utilisation requirement for plastic parts that need to conform to the overall end product certification requirements.
