Plastic waste – The biggest environmental problem of our time

Every day, more and more plastic is trashed in the ocean.
The result: species extinction, microplastics, the general contamination of the water quality, the loss of habitats and much more. The solution to the problem is only possible in the long term, because as long as humans continue to dispose of their waste in the sea or it is washed into the sea, the consequences will remain the same: our marine inhabitants will die, habitats will be displaced or even destroyed, and the ecosystem will become increasingly unbalanced.

Also problematic are the increased CO2 emissions generated in the production of new plastics, which have a negative impact on the environment.

Sustainability in our case production

In the field of Post Industry Recycling (PIR) we, bwh Spezialkoffer GmbH, have been strongly positioned for many years. For example, production rejects that occur during the thermoforming process are always recycled and fed back into the production cycle as processed granulate.

We are now going one step further by adopting new approaches, which specifically include post consumer recycling (PCR): we are looking at the use of raw materials from products that have actually already reached the end of their life cycle and should be disposed of.

Old discarded trawls

Recycled fishing nets for the production of plastic cases

Old fishing nets, trawl nets and other waste products from the maritime industry are collected and processed. The fiber plastics are recirculated as high-quality granules under the name “Sea Plastics” and are already used in many applications – with consistently high quality.

Old discarded trawls

Together with our partner epsotech from Juelich, we are now taking a step further towards sustainability in our case production. We can produce case shells made of 100% recycled Sea Plastics.

We are the first case manufacturer to source and process materials from this environmentally friendly source. In combination with our low CO2 manufacturing process, deep drawing, this results in extremely environmentally friendly and sustainable products for you.
