Recycling of yarn scraps
A spool of yarn weighs 3-5 kg. The length of the yarn varies from spool to spool, so the spools are never fully emptied. In the past, the spools with yarn scraps were incinerated, but now we recycle the yarn. In a new production line, we remove the yarn scraps from the spools and return this yarn to our supplier for recycling. This new practice results in the recycling of 40 to 45 tonnes of yarn annually.
Recycling of cardboard spools
Our looms often run 24 hours a day, and each loom is fed with 1,200 to 1,600 yarn spools. These spools are made from recycled cardboard and are replaced with new spools when almost empty.
The used spools used to be incinerated, but now we recycle them. Each year we recycle 49 tonnes of cardboard spools.
Disposable pallets become new pallets
Manufacturing businesses receive large quantities of raw materials on disposable pallets, which are generally only used once.
To optimise the use of pallets, we have entered into a cooperation with a company that buys our used disposable pallets and sells those that can still be used. Approximately 18% of our disposable pallets are thereby reused, while the remainder are converted into wood chips and used as fuel.
