Recycling & Reuse

Running a busi­ness in a sustai­nable manner isn’t just good for the envi­ron­ment — it’s also good for the bottom line. With so many products being made out of recycled mate­rials the oppor­tu­ni­ties are endless. Also, some compa­nies are seeking alter­na­tive inputs to their processes, which creates a whole new market for particular resources that would otherwise have been consi­dered as waste.

Our future will be built on recycled mate­rials. Contact Aksie and together we will turn waste into value.

Metals

Metals are valuable mate­rials that can be recycled again and again without degra­ding their proper­ties. Scrap metal has financial value and recycling of metals preserves natural resources. This is especially true with non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper, zinc and tin as well as precious metals like gold, silver and platinum. Recycling saves money and allows manu­fac­tu­ring busi­nesses to reduce their produc­tion cost.

Plas­tics

Plas­tics can be molded into various products which find uses in a wide assort­ment of applica­tions. They are durable, lightweight and inex­pen­sive. As a result, the produc­tion and uses of plas­tics have increased signi­ficantly. Consequently, the reuse and recycling of plas­tics is extre­mely impor­tant to a company´s compe­ti­ti­ve­ness and also to reduce the amount of plastic pollu­tion in our envi­ron­ment.

Paper and Carton

Nearly all paper and carton can be recycled and reused for the benefit of our envi­ron­ment as well as the economy. Recycling requires much less energy and produces signi­ficantly less pollu­tion than produc­tion from “virgin” mate­rials. The large Finnish paper and carton industry has been a fore­runner in deve­lo­ping good recycling prac­tices.

Glass

Glass makes up a large compo­nent of house­hold and industrial waste. Glass is ideal for recycling since none of the mate­rial is degraded by normal use and it is virtually infi­ni­tely reusable. Recycling uses less energy than manu­fac­tu­ring from “virgin” mate­rials so it also econo­mical. Glass is recycled into new glass products as well as raw mate­rial for construc­tion mate­rials like insu­la­tion.

Rubber

Recycling of rubber is mainly recycling waste tires that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles. These tires are a chal­len­ging source of waste due to large volume, dura­bi­lity and compo­si­tion. Recycled tires are shredded into rubber grain that can be used in land construc­tion processes and water treat­ment. Rubber is also burnt in high tempe­ra­tures for energy. New tech­niques and inno­va­tions promise far better recycling oppor­tu­ni­ties for the future.
