In our company responsibility is concentrated in ecology, quality control, continuous measurement of the carbon footprint and recycling of materials.
Modern equiomentKalliomuovi is constantly modernizing its equipment. The new equipment will be able to use recyclable material more efficiently and better than before. Currently, one third of the products made in Rock Plastic are made from recycled raw materials.
Almost 100% recyclingKalliomuovi produces thousands of kilometers of different films a year. Of this amount, less than a per cent of the raw material goes to the incinerator. Any waste on the production line due to a change in the width or thickness of the product goes to be re-granulated and then returned to circulation and production. All our films are made from fully recyclable polyethylene.
Quality controlWith decades of experience, we know exactly which raw materials make any kind of film. However, a mere gut feel is not enough, and quality is constantly monitored mechanically. Modern machines detect if, for example, the driving values do not match the raw material and give an alarm. Quality assurance also means that all raw materials are tested before they go into production.
We have invested in solar energy and installed a solar power plant in our company’s premises. Solar energy is a renewable and environmentally friendly source of energy. This helps us reduce our environmental impact and save energy.
The company has reduced its carbon footprint by, among other things, investing in heat recovery. The energy recovered from production completely heats the old part of the plant.
