Technipaq Partners with DuPont™ Tyvek® and Freepoint Eco-Systems to Reduce and Recycle Medical Packaging Plastic Waste

Published

on

CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill., Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Technipaq Inc., a leading manufacturer of flexible sterilizable packaging solutions and Tyvek® Authorized Converter, proudly announces a new partnership with DuPont Tyvek® and recycling partner Freepoint Eco-Systems, designed to significantly build upon the company’s ongoing sustainability and recycling efforts.

Commencing on World Cleanup Day (Sept. 18, 2021), Technipaq will be able to effectively divert its mixed material plastic waste stream, containing Tyvek® and other plastic waste, generated during healthcare packaging manufacturing at its Crystal Lake, IL facility, away from landfills and to Freepoint, where it will be recycled for use in the production of new ‘virgin-quality’ plastics and fuels.

“DuPont Tyvek® has consistently taken a leadership role in forging interdisciplinary partnerships within the global healthcare packaging and manufacturing value chain, which is an increasingly important topic for our industry as we collectively seek to achieve more sustainable solutions and create a circular economy,” said Brian Rosenburg, President and CEO, Technipaq. “We are excited and honored to play such a major role in helping make this a reality.”

“This represents yet another great multi-stakeholder partnership designed to build a waste-free, ‘closed loop’ healthcare packaging manufacturing environment,” said John Richard, Vice President, DuPont Safety.

“The healthcare industry requires a broad spectrum of plastics to manufacture packaging solutions for medical device, diagnostic and pharmaceutical products. Recyclability of healthcare packaging manufacturing waste is an increasingly important topic for the industry as it seeks to achieve sustainable solutions and a circular economy. Bringing a market leader such as Technipaq into this initiative marks a significant, positive step forward for our industry overall,” added Richard.

“Freepoint intends to recycle waste plastic that is usually very challenging to recycle and is typically headed for landfill or incineration,” said Kat Doerr, Vice President of Origination, Freepoint Eco-Systems. “By converting plastic waste into reusable products, less oil is required to be extracted from the ground. This results in a more sustainable economy and a healthier planet.”

Freepoint aspires to divert 170 million pounds of plastic waste from landfills at each of its facilities on an annual basis—the equivalent of reducing GHG emissions from up to 55,000 cars per facility.

Tyvek® is mainly made of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and is certified 100% recyclable, making it compatible with existing and emerging (advanced) recycling techniques. Due to its unique combination of properties, Tyvek® allows for the facilitation of packaging solutions—such as mono-material structures—that meet the sustainable design guidelines established by industry leaders such as Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council (HPRC), CEFLEX and RecyClass.

Groundbreaking ceremony in Blomberg: Phoenix Contact builds an energy-efficient facility for machine building

Published

on

The new building will consolidate all the machine building units currently scattered around the Blomberg site, bringing them together in one place. The 18,500 m² site provides space for a production area, offices, and a canteen. In the future, 400 employees will work here. Energy efficiency was a top priority during the planning. Along with the high insulation standard of the building enclosure, heat recovery via a ventilation system and air compressors, and highly efficient plant technology, a photovoltaic system of more than 750 KWp will be installed on the roof. This way, a large portion of the energy demand can be covered by green electricity. The heart of the heating and cooling system is an ice storage tank that will provide the energy for the heat pumps, a technology that utilizes the high amount of energy released by freezing water in order to support heating. The ice that forms in this process can be used for low-cost cooling. “When the system is combined with solar collectors for the ice tank, we can store regenerative energy at a low temperature level without any losses,” Stührenberg explains. “This is yet another building block for increasing our share of self-generated energy from renewable sources.”

IJGlobal reconhece a Atlas Renewable Energy com os prêmios Acordo de Energia do Ano ESG de 2020 e Social ESG

Published

on

O prêmio Social ESG foi concedido ao programa da Atlas “Somos parte da mesma energia”, uma iniciativa social lançada no Brasil, Chile e México, e implementada durante a fase de construção dos projetos de energia solar que a empresa está atualmente desenvolvendo nesses países.

O programa visa capacitar a força de trabalho feminina local com treinamentos que permitirão às mulheres optar por trabalhos mais técnicos na construção dos projetos. Ao mesmo tempo, a Atlas mobilizou seus empreiteiros para, no processo de contratação, dar prioridade às mulheres que participaram dos treinamentos. Esta iniciativa se tornou o principal programa social da Atlas e está alinhada com os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável da ONU (5 – Igualdade de gênero, 8 – Trabalho decente e crescimento econômico, 10 – Redução de desigualdades e 12 – Consumo e produção responsáveis).

Até hoje, aproximadamente 1.000 mulheres foram treinadas em diferentes áreas, como construção civil, carpintaria, saúde e segurança, montagem de módulos, eletricidade, entre outras. Isso nos permitiu aumentar dos habituais 2% para 15% a participação feminina na construção dos projetos.

O programa “Somos parte da mesma energia” deve ser implementado nos novos projetos da empresa para que mais mulheres possam se beneficiar desses treinamentos e encontrar novas oportunidades de carreira.

A Usina Solar Jacarandá no Brasil também foi reconhecida pela IJGlobal com o prêmio Negócio de Energia Solar do Ano (Américas) devido à implementação bem-sucedida do programa “Somos parte da mesma energia” durante a construção do projeto.

Durante esse período, mais de 214 mulheres foram treinadas em habilidades técnicas. Entre as mulheres treinadas, 123 foram contratadas para fazer parte da construção da Jacarandá. No total, 159 mulheres foram contratadas, o que representou 17% do trabalho total contratado na Jacarandá durante o pico das obras. O projeto também se concentrou em contratar grupos sub-representados, como a população afrodescendente no estado da Bahia, que formou a maior parte da força de trabalho, 85% e 83% de homens e de mulheres afrodescendentes, respectivamente.

“É uma honra que a IJGlobal tenha reconhecido nosso programa de força de trabalho feminina “Somos parte da mesma energia” e sua implementação no projeto de energia solar Jacarandá”, disse Maria José Cortes, diretora de ESG da Atlas Renewable Energy. “Criar e implementar este programa tem sido uma experiência incrível para todos nós da Atlas, ajudando a abrir uma porta para novas oportunidades para mulheres em áreas rurais na América Latina e mudando paradigmas. Estamos muito orgulhosos disso, mas sabemos que ainda há muito a ser feito em termos de D&I. Esperamos que este programa promova a base de práticas mais inclusivas em nosso setor e nas comunidades onde atuamos.”

Sobre a Atlas Renewable Energy 

A Atlas Renewable Energy é uma empresa de geração de energia renovável que desenvolve, constrói e opera projetos de energia renovável com contratos de longo prazo em todas as Américas. O portfólio atual da empresa é de 2,2 GW de projetos contratados nos estágios de desenvolvimento, construção ou operação, e visa expandir para mais 4 GW nos próximos anos.

Fundada no início de 2017, a Atlas Renewable Energy conta com uma equipe experiente com o histórico mais longo em energia solar do setor da América Latina. A empresa é reconhecida por seus altos padrões no desenvolvimento, construção e operação de projetos em larga escala.
