Recycling Post-Industrial Waste
Tyvek® has taken a proactive step by establishing an on-site recycling facility alongside its manufacturing lines in Luxembourg. This facility utilises an advanced combination system involving shredding, feeding, and extrusion. It’s designed to process all forms of Tyvek® production waste, transforming it into pellets that can be reused.
Moreover, this mechanical recycling system offers a streamlined and effective approach to converting post-industrial waste into high-density polyethylene (HDPE) granules, which are then repurposed. For instance, these recycled HDPE granules are employed to create plastic cores that serve as containers for winding Tyvek® for storage and transport purposes.
Furthermore, Tyvek® maintains an ongoing partnership with Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS). This collaboration ensures that Tyvek® production waste in Richmond, VA finds a second life in the production of meticulously engineered water management products.
