Sustainable Solutions for Plastic Manufacturing
4 MILLION+ lbs OF PLASTIC RECYCLED ANNUALLY.
Here’s how we do it:
We receive our raw materials in the form of sheets, or rolls of sheets, for use in our thermoforming process.
After the materials have been thermoformed, the excess material is trimmed by CNC robotic routers or in-line die cutters, and granulated into small particles by our dedicated recycling equipment
This ground material is then packaged and returned to our raw material suppliers to be reintroduced into the material stream for future use.
LINDAR works diligently to implement operational practices that reduce energy usage, waste, and excess material. We regularly review our energy consumption and material surplus to identify areas of improvement and determine solutions for environmental impact reduction throughout our process.
Recycling is an integrated stage of our manufacturing process aided by our investment in dedicated, on-site plastic recycling equipment. Aided by our suite of inline grinders, conveyors, and regrind cyclones, LINDAR’s annual recycling output will soon exceed 4 million pounds.
We partner with suppliers like Good Natured Products to source sustainable, efficient alternatives to petroleum-based polymers like plant-based (bio) PLA and bio-PET. By educating and training our team to work with these materials, we further global efforts to replace traditional plastics with green alternatives.
