Verified sustainability with Fortum Circo® recyclates

Fortum Circo recycled plastic granulates

Implementing circular economy actions and reducing climate change are goals that most companies have in today’s world. The best way to save resources and reduce the carbon footprint of a plastic product is to use recycled plastics instead of virgin plastics as an input material when possible.

Bio-based and biodegradable materials are also often recognised as an environmentally friendly alternative to plastics, but it should be noted that they are not necessarily environmentally superior to plastics. The most valuable materials are the ones that hold value and can be used more than just one time.

Fortum Circo® is sustainable in every sense. The climate change impact of Fortum Circo granulates is on average only half of that of virgin granulates.

Transparent production process

The origin of feedstock material and the processing of plastic waste play a key role in the sustainability of production. As a recycled plastics manufacturer we have the whole recycling process in our own hands and can thus ensure the sustainability of Fortum Circo’s production at every stage of the process. We handle all waste at our own state-of-the-art plants, carefully monitoring the sorting process, so we can ensure that no questionable labour practices or environmental damage are involved in processing the waste plastic.

The material handling and the whole recycling process are protected to prevent the leakage of micro-plastics. Our recycling process complies with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards and has low CO2 emissions. We also have EuCertPlast certification.

Fortum Circo has EuCertPlast sertificate
