Recycled PVC is a discarded PVC product, or semi-finished products, that are diverted from waste for use within a new product; processing waste is included provided it cannot be reused in the same process that generated the waste.”
Why recycle PVC?
- PVC is well suited to recycling due to its advanced mechanical recycling properties.
- Large volumes of recyclable PVC waste are available.
- Using Recycled PVC helps meet resource-efficiency targets and allows the preservation of natural resources.
- Using recycled PVC reduces emissions and landfill.
One kilogram of PVC has a carbon footprint of approximately 4.1 kilograms of CO2. Since the average card weighs 5.07 grams, the CO2 footprint of a card is 21 grams, including the energy and water consumed in production.
*For each kilo of PVC recycled, 2 Kilos of CO2 can be saved.
Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. Choose Recycled PVC Card to help protecting the enviroment and show to world that you care.
