Brianza Plastica fiberglass laminates in sheets and rolls

Waste Value

 

In 2020, the company entered into a partnership with a major waste management facility aimed at “ennobling” the end-of-life of its waste and production residues in fibreglass, a composite and thermosetting material that historically has few sustainable recycling solutions.

Thanks to this collaboration, almost all of the waste coming from the production processes is now destined for use in cement and steelworks in the form of RDF (refuse derived fuel), which exploits the energy properties of the waste, and allows recovering all of the combustion ashes within the same production cycle. This decreases the use of fossil fuels and energy from non-renewable sources, which in turn reduces CO2 emissions into the environment.

This partnership is part of a series of projects that the company has undertaken aimed at introducing a circular economy model that can be more sustainable for the world of fibreglass laminate production.
