The Enval Process: A unique solution for recycling plastic aluminum that reduces the carbon footprint by 90%
The use of laminates for fast-moving consumer goods such as toothpaste tubes, drinks, pet food pouches, coffee bags, and cosmetic tubes has increased in recent years, with more than 160,000 tons of flexible laminate packaging entering the UK marketplace each year alone. This process closes the packaging life cycle loop by fully recycling the aluminum in an energy-efficient way by using the gas produced from the plastic to power the process.
How It Works
This solution recycles aluminum using the ‘microwave-induced pyrolysis’ process, converting plastics into oil and gas and recovering the ready to be recycled aluminum. The process is clean, efficient, and economical for both post-consumer and industrial waste, leading to 75% in energy savings and over 90% carbon footprint reduction compared to current disposal methods; while also preventing laminates from ending up in a landfill.
The company works with brands, manufacturers, waste handlers, and consumers to increase the recycling of this popular form of packaging. Applications include consumer electronics, aerospace, construction, composites, utensils, etc.
