SUSTAINABILITY

Driven by a desire to preserve a healthy environment for future generations, we make it a top priority to set a cleaner, greener standard for the packaging industry. As a result, our commitment to environmental sustainability is evident in each step of our manufacturing processes, from selection of materials, to product development, to manufacturing and freight.

LASER ANILOX CLEANER

By using a Laser Anilox Cleaner, we reduce water and energy consumption during our plate cleaning process. The Laser Anilox Cleaner also:

  • Compliant with international safety regulations
  • Energy-efficient air extraction system
  • Eliminates messy waste
  • Faster cleaning cycles

Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer- (RTO)

PPC Flexible Packaging is continually looking for ways to ensure we are environmentally conscious and leading the way with the latest eco innovations. This includes offering sustainable packaging solutions, but also using sustainable solutions in our production facilities as well.

One way in which we accomplish this is by using Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) in our manufacturing plants. These systems reduce our carbon footprint by destroying any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that may be created in our manufacturing process. VOCs may include air toxins, oders, and hazardous air pollutants. It’s important to destroy VOCs so that they don’t escape into the environment where they can then harm people, animals, and accumulate in the atmosphere and cause thick smog formation.

RTOs work through a process known as oxidation. Exhaust air from industrial processes are redirected into a combustion chamber where the VOCs are then exposed to extremely high temperatures until 99%+ of pollutants are destroyed. Through this process VOCs are transformed into carbon dioxide, water, and heat.

The result? Cleaner air for our employees, communities, and the planet.
