QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENT

REYTRAPLAST has an ISO 9001 standard-compliance quality assurance system that guarantees the quality of the products and services it supplies to its customers.

The rigorous quality controls applied to all the company’s products in terms of manufacturing and the raw materials used make it leader in the recycling of industrial plastics.

As a guarantee of its quality, DNV has certified REYTRAPLAST compliant with the ISO 9001: 2015 standard and the certificate has been renewed recently.

REYTRAPLAST is certified by the Agència de Residus de Catalunya (ARC, the Catalonian Waste Agency) as a Waste Manager (code E-85.95) and it is one of the companies in the sector with an environmental business licence.

It takes an active part in the recycling of plastics as a member of the following associations:

– ANARPLA: Asociación Nacional de Recicladores de Plásticos (National Association of Plastics Recyclers).

– EUPR: European Plastics Recyclers.

– CEP: Centro Español de Plásticos (Spanish Plastics Centre).

– AIMPLAS: Instituto Tecnológico del Plástico (Plastics Technology Institute).

REYTRAPLAST is currently waiting to obtain the ISO 14001 standard.
Some plastic bottles take about 500 years to decompose. A lighter takes 1000 years. A bag takes 55 years.
Most plastics are used in the manufacture of containers or single-use products.
In 2013, in Europe, the demand for packaging plastics was 39%. In Spain, it was 45%.

The gradual increase in the need for plastic products and the high quality of plastics from recycling processes is forcing companies to use more and more recycled plastics in their production processes.

Accordingly, promoting measures based on the circular economy, in which priority is given to reduction and the reuse of raw materials, is one of the great challenges facing Industry in the 21st century.

The use of recycled plastics along with other industrial measures would make it possible to gradually reduce the impact consumer society has on the environment.

-80% CO2

The production of recycled plastic compared to virgin plastic means an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions (reduction of the carbon footprint).
