Senoplast’s focus is on sustainability

Senosan Eco furniture foils are to expand the company’s climate-friendly product range.

At Senoplast, the focus is on sustainable business. For more than 20 years, the company has been processing plastic waste from its customers and feeding it back into the production process.

Since 2020, it has been using its own recyclate processing plant. The CO2 balance of the main plant in Piesendorf (Austria) is exemplary in the plastics industry: the production of 1kg of a plastic sheet causes only 8.1gm of carbon dioxide (scope 1-2).

Since 2003, Senoplast has been using a heat recovery system that saves energy costs. In addition, the company has been sourcing electricity exclusively from renewable energy sources for the past 5 years.

In addition, the plastics specialist has now implemented a photo-voltaic system to further reduce the amount of electricity it buys from outside sources.

To further reduce emissions, a new pressure filter system for the cooling water and line insulation to reduce noise are among the measures being implemented.

In the area of mobility, Senoplast is increasingly using electric forklifts as well as e-vehicles and e-charging stations for the workforce. There are also electrically powered shift buses for the workforce.

Senoplast‘s environmental management system was certified by QualityAustria in 2021 according to ISO 14001:2015 and EC Regulation 1221/2009.

In terms of sustainability, Senoplast is taking the next step to reduce its carbon footprint and achieve climate neutrality. In addition to the already available Senosan Eco furniture foils, which are largely made from recycled plastics, bio-plastics under the brand name Senosan Eco-B are to expand the climate-friendly product range.

In doing so, the company is following the mass balance approach, in which renewable raw materials are already used at the beginning of the production chain as a substitute for fossil raw materials.

The raw material used for Senosan Eco-B bio-plastics will be kitchen waste and waste oil, in fact renewable material not suitable for consumption. The advantages for the customers are an improved CO2 balance of the sold products and a simple and fast solution with consistent quality.

The products are available today without additional testing costs. The overall benefits for all are the reduced use of fossil raw materials, resulting in a reduced CO2 footprint.
