Muovi-Heljanko continuously develops and improves those areas of operation that fall under environmental responsibility. We aim to minimise the effects on the environment in our production processes and products. Environmental values are an imperative and can be seen both in our daily work and in our strategic guidelines.
Muovi-Heljanko takes the environment into account in every step of the production process. Both in product design and production, the effects on the environment are kept at a minimum. Our product development has enabled us to cut back on the amount of plastic in our packaging. We aim to develop products whose use and recyclability make them more environmentally friendly also after they have left the Muovi-Heljanko factory.
We have significantly decreased the use of electricity in our production processes, among other things by recovering waste heat from production to heat our facilities, and by utilising so called free cooling during cold periods to chill the mould water. The electricity we use is 100 percent CO2 free.
Excess raw material is meticulously collected to be further used in other processes.
Plastics as packaging material are superior also from an environmental perspective. Many of the qualities of plastic, like lightness, durability and formability, make e.g. logistics more effective and increase the preservability of products packed in plastics.
We pay great attention to the raw material we use and their recyclability. All plastics used by Muovi-Heljanko can be recycled and re-used. In the future, even more recycled material will be used as raw material in our production. Constant development is carried out to make plastics more environmentally safe and product development ensures that top qualities go into our products so that they can best serve their purpose.
Our latest innovation is the multilayer canister. The 5-litre multilayer canister (190 g) contains 24 % less plastics and its carbon footprint is 24 % smaller than that of the most common 5-litre canisters for small engine petrol (250 g) produced in the Nordic countries.
We want to extend our environmental responsibility from our own operations to the products of our clients and end-users. We manufacture high quality plastic packaging that prolongs the life of their content, is easy to re-use and can finally be recycled.
