Recycled plastics and products
We offer comprehensive solutions for refining industrial and retail plastics for reuse. Fortum's CIRCO recycled plastic profile is a cost-efficient material and can be customised for your needs.
As a raw material, recycled plastic is not only high in quality, but also cheaper and more environmentally friendly than virgin raw materials.
We use recycled plastics to produce CIRCO recyclates and sorted mix plastics to produce CIRCO plastics profiles. We want plastic materials to circulate for as long as they have value.
Each batch of CIRCO recycled plastic can be traced and the CO2 footprint of CIRCO recycled plastic granulates is smaller than that of virgin raw materials.
Recycle and reuse plastics
Recycled plastic is a step towards the efficient utilisation of materials in the circular economy. We use recycled plastics to produce CIRCO recyclates and sorted mix plastics to produce CIRCO plastics profiles. Fortum receives industrial and retail plastics and separately collected plastic consumer packaging. We also reuse waste plastics from farms as materials or energy.
Fortum's CIRCO is a cost-efficient raw material that can partly or entirely replace virgin raw materials in the production of plastic products. A recycled CIRCO plastic profile is a durable and environmentally friendly material for different purposes. Thanks to development work, CIRCO recycled plastic can be customised for your processes and product requirements. Together we can customise recycled materials for your production needs.
CIRCO granulates recycled for production of:
- HDPE extrusion
- LDPE film application
- PP injection moulding applications.
Reliable and durable CIRCO plastic profile
A recycled CIRCO plastic profile is a durable and environmentally friendly material for different purposes. We produce profiles of different shapes and lengths from 100% recycled plastics. The unique and firm consistency of CIRCO profiles is refined from industrial side-flows and waste materials.
CIRCO profiles can be milled, sawed, drilled, nailed and screwed. They are easy to clean as they withstand washing and chemicals, and the material does not absorb water. The smooth, non-splintering surface is also hygienic, since it is not a hospitable environment for bacterial growth. The color options for profiles are very resistant thanks to the UV protection agent.
