Issue 204 2021-10-07 Author: CHEN WAY MACHINERY CO., LTD.
One thing that makes blow molding so great are its endless applications. In fact, plastic products are everywhere, making it clear how incredibly useful this material is in modern life. However, in today’s world, the production of these products is not just a matter of their unit price, quality, or visual appearance; customers and end users also care about their sustainability, and they care a lot.
Why should a blow molder care for sustainability?
Truth is that sustainability and blow molding can go hand in hand. As a blow molding manufacturer, some of the reasons why you should care about sustainability are: you can save money, improve your reputation, attract investors, increase brand awareness and customer satisfaction, protect and help the eco-system, and more!
Sustainable practices for blow molders
After realizing how valuable being eco-friendly is for any business, we don’t blame you for trying to find out what steps you can take to produce your blow molded plastic products. Here are some of them:
1. Choose and work with eco-friendly resins:
Articles like bottles, jerry cans, drums, tanks, etc. all use different plastic resins for their fabrication. Analyze the properties of HDPE, LDPE, PP, PC and other resins and choose the one that best fits your application requirements while also keeping the environment in mind.
2. Use Calcium Carbonate in your blow molded products:
Adding Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) to the middle layer of your three-layer products replaces virgin material -which is very expensive- and results in the reduction of production costs. Moreover, carbon footprint and greenhouse gas impact of the finished products will also be minimized.
3. Manage your energy expenditure:
For industries such as blow molding, energy can be a huge operation cost. From using an efficient blow molding machine in the production of your plastic products to monitoring how energy is used company-wide, energy expenditure can be significantly reduced in your business.
