Gwalia Healthcare have taken receipt of an order for Hybrisan hand sanitiser in bottles made using 50% recycled HDPE content, the order from a public sector organisation, aim to procure as much as possible from within Wales are keen to support the model of sustainable manufacturing.
The integration of recycled polymer is the next step in Gwalia’s quest to becoming a more sustainable manufacturing facility. Working alongside British waste management companies on the supply of commercially available food-grade rHDPE, Gwalia are pushing forward with sustainable and energy efficient options that surpass the Government’s incentive of the Plastic Packaging Tax due for implementation in April 2022. The tax seeks those manufacturing plastic packaging to produce with a minimum of 30% recycled content in order to help promote recycling and minimise the amount of plastic going into landfill or incineration.
Production trials over recent weeks have seen Gwalia test a number of different compositions in both their injection blow moulding and extrusion blow moulding departments with very promising results.
The use of recycled HDPE is something that all of Gwalia’s nutraceutical customers are expected to take advantage of, particularly with the NHS setting out their Net Zero Policy. Gwalia are confident that their customers will be able to support the NHS’ goals with the support of their manufacturing incentive.
Gwalia also anticipates the move to recycled material amongst their industrial & automotive clientele as both industries strive to develop sustainable initiatives before 2030.
