Green Product Development:
Another starting point towards a more environmentally friendly way of doing business is the development and research of alternative plastic materials. As part of this, we have launched two projects that focus on the use of alternative plastic materials:
Our 1st project highlights the use of so-called "recyclates", i.e. materials which consist of 100% recycled processes. It is particularly important here that the material properties are permanently guaranteed in order to ensure consistent product quality and performance.
Products are already in use in local markets to evaluate their practical applicability. Based on the knowledge gained here, further applications can be derived.
Our 2nd project deals with "bio-polymers", which consist of 100% sustainable bio-polyethylene. This can be obtained, for example, from the bioalcohol of sugar cane. The advantages of this basic material are obvious, because the bio-based plastics consist of renewable raw materials. The chemical structure of these plastics does not differ significantly from those obtained from petroleum.
This project is currently in a test phase.Circular economy at EJOT:
As a technology leader, EJOT already makes important contributions to the circular economy and energy saving with its product variety in numerous areas: Examples can be found in products for thermal insulation, electromobility, car body construction or solar technology.
