Pistoni Srl is a company based in Castel Goffredo, in the province of Mantua, in the heart of one of the largest and most famous textile manufacturing districts in Italy. This plastic material is used in hosiery and textile companies, but it also produces non-toxic processing waste, which must be disposed of in compliance with current regulations.


Advantages of recycling polyethylene

Plastic production waste, even if not dangerous, is highly polluting, and it is therefore mandatory to dispose of it properly in compliance with current legislation. One of the most sustainable and effective ways is recycling. High density polyethylene (HDPE) is in fact a thermoplastic polymer obtained through a particular processing of oil; to have a kilogram of material, you need slightly less than twice as much oil. However, processing waste can be used in subsequent productions.


Provide for effective withdrawal and adequate recycling of HDPE allows obtaining secondary raw materials of excellent quality, which can be used in numerous other applications, thus establishing a virtuous circle of sustainable economy.
