Orange Plastics in a sustainable world

As a plastics manufacturer, Orange Plastics is aware of its responsibility for the world of tomorrow.

Our sustainable production process raises the bar of corporate social responsibility in plastics manufacturing. At the same time, it provides our customers with a significant cost advantage. Orange Plastics focuses on smart and sustainable engineering, low energy consumption and minimal waste. This is made possible by our good cooperation with partner R2S. Working together sustainably to prepare a better future world. Read more below.

What is R2S?

R2S stimulates plastic manufacturers to produce in a sustainable manner according to an innovative way of recycling, a smart way of reusing plastic materials. Products with the R2S logo are sorted by their exact specification.

Due to an extensive knowledge of the plastics, the same materials can be used to recreate an equivalent product. This differs from traditional recycling, where valuable plastics are combined to produce low-value products.

Contributing to a better environment by sorting by plastic type

Through our collaboration with R2S, we reduce the use of fossil fuels from the beginning of the production chain. After all, by accurately sorting by plastic specification, the same type of plastic can be reused.

An additional advantage of this recycling method is that plastic products that would normally end up in the rubbish can now also be reused. This means less pressure on our waste management system. Extra contributive to the environment! But also for you as a supplier of these products.

CO2 neutral, fully transparant.

R2S’s advanced calculator maps out exactly how much CO2 you will save. The aim is to produce 100% climate neutral and R2S requires the same from its partners. Through the use of green electricity and the possibility to realize forests with optimal CO2 uptake.

R2S helps you save costs

R2S is not only good for the environment, but also for your company results.
In addition to reusing your old products as a raw material for your new products, R2S allows you to save money in your own production chain by contacting the consumer directly.

What else does Orange Plastics focus on?

Smart and sustainable engineering

During the process, we assess the manufacturability of a product and, of course, we also look at the possibilities of setting up the design in such a way that it can be processed in a sustainable way. This means that we try to make products as much as possible from the same type of plastic and not add other materials such as metal or silicone, which would make it more complicated to process the materials. Smart engineering at Orange Plastics also ensures that as little waste as possible remains after the end of the production process.

Low energy use

At Orange Plastics, we try to coordinate the production process as optimally as possible and to make minimal use of fossil fuels. We urge our partners to make as much use of renewable energy as possible and try to keep transport to a minimum. In addition, we use an extensive machine park with machines of different sizes and specifications. It is important to find out on which type of machine a product should be produced and thus make the most of the used energy. A small product is made with a small mould, therefore needs little pressure and does not need to be manufactured on a large machine. Learn more about this process? Check out our OPA videos!
