Integrated Packaging Group (IPG) is expanding its green initiatives by using a range of engineered endurance products sourced from Integrated Recycling (IR) in its polyethylene manufacturing plants.
IPG has replaced disposable timber pallets and timber pallet divider boards with equivalent plastic recycled products from IR.
IR (formerly Ausplaztik), the Group’s newest addition is based in Mildura and recycles waste polyethylene and polystyrene to produce a range of engineered endurance products such as bollards, round posts and poles, garden and tree stakes, continuous planks and decking as well as seating and picnic tables among others.
Rob Archibald, GM Sales and Marketing says that the next step would be the replacement of PVC plastic cores used in some of IPG’s agricultural and industrial stretch films with recycled plastic cores manufactured at IR.
He adds that IPG is developing lower gauge, higher performance films across their range of stretch, shrink, pallet wrap and mulch films for the industrial and agricultural markets, saving money for customers while significantly reducing waste to landfill.
