ENGEL Signs New Plastics Economy Global Commitment

March 25 2019

In mid-March 2019, the injection molding machine manufacturer ENGEL AUSTRIA was one of the first plastic machine manufacturers to sign the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. The aim of the initiative is to create a circular economy. In cooperation with more than 350 other companies, universities, and organizations, ENGEL has committed itself to actively contributing to the transfer of plastics into closed material cycles.

ENGEL supports its customers in designing and producing packaging according to the rules of the circular economy and in opening up a wider range of applications for recycled materials. In this regard, the focus is on the following topics:

• To guarantee a high process consistency and to prevent rejects with the help of intelligent assistant systems, even when the raw material is subject to strong quality fluctuations, as is often the case with recycled materials.
• To further increase the proportion of recycled material in sandwich components with the aid of innovative processing technologies.
• Working closely with processors in the course of product development with the goal of reducing material usage and enabling the subsequent recycling of products.
• To further strengthen the consulting services in the area of upstream processes in order to optimize the processing of recycled materials for injection molding.
