Prochem lightens packaging
Prochem Europe has further reduced the environmental impact of its
products with the switch to a new 5L container design, 10g lighter than
"We use thousands of these containers every year so this move represents a
significant reduction in the packaging weight of our products overall,
with the associated environmental benefits of less packaging waste, and
lower energy use in relation to the containers’ transport," says Prochem
Europe Chemical Product Manager, Paul Reynolds.
"The move to lighter packaging also accords with our commitment to the
continuous improvement in the management of our environmental impact as
made in our successful application for a Royal Warrant," he adds.
Relatedly, Prochem has carried out a review of its recycling and waste
Recycling cardboard, white paper and polythene waste produced at the
company’s Chessington headquarters is a well-established procedure but
the company has recently sought to further increase proportionally
recyclable from general waste.
After discussions with a number of waste contractors, Prochem has employed
the services of Grundon Waste Management to increase its recycling
Consequently, the separation and recycling of further elements of waste
including coloured paper, magazines, envelopes, metals, HDPE and PET
plastic bottles commenced.
The move has resulted in a significant reduction in the amount of general
waste produced by the plant’s manufacturing and office activities, says
