Oldrati Ogreen Benefits
Greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by introducing post-production elements in the new production chain. For this reason, greensourcing is part of Oldrati strategy of carbon footprint reduction. With Oldrati Ogreen rubber we can contribute in cutting carbon dioxide emissions up to 40% and develop plans together with our customers to reduce environmental impact along the value chain, certifying it with life cycle assessment.
When discussing sustainability and climate, the focus is often on gaseous air emissions. But what about solid wastes? Nowadays we should change our conception of such “waste material” and, from this point forward, start calling it raw material from reuse instead of waste. By optimizing the devulcanization process, we are able to reduce consumption of primary raw materials and supplying our clients with high performance and sustainable products.
The best waste is waste that never was. Increasing recycling rates by developing cutting-edge management of production scraps represents the solution to our planet’s waste problem. As a result of waste reduction by reusing rubber material, we are able to avoid disposing in landfills the equivalent in weight of 1500 small cars. Rigeneration of rubber is possible and it contributes to the creation of a sustainable and circular economy.
The most effective way to reduce environmental impact is to not use virgin material in the first place. Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy; raw materials must be extracted or synthesize, exploiting natural resources and putting under pressure local ecosystems. By using secondary materials, we aim for high-added value materials and products given a comparable status alongside primary materials, in term of quality and performance.
We work together with our customers to create value, improving the use and reuse of natural resources and protecting the environment.
Until now, rubber has been considered a non-renewable natural resource and therefore subject to disposal once it reaches the end of its life. Processing waste and rubber components present in everyday objects have always represented an impressive amount of waste material; today, they become a usable resource again. Through its reuse we can give a new life to rubber, reduce the environmental impact and generate new value.
