We started with our bestselling Smartloc water trap, and continued with all other products. At the end of 2022, all our water traps contained a considerable amount of recycled plastic.
When we started our sustainability work, one thing was obvious for us early on: we wanted to make as big an impact as possible in cutting our CO2 emissions. That is why we did not want to make a special product line of recycled raw material (rPP), but rather change the raw material in every single product we produce.
In line with this maximum impact approach, we started with our bestselling water trap, Smartloc. In this way we would be able to, as quickly as possible, save as much virgin plastic as possible.
First we tested how high the amount of recycled polypropylene (rPP) could be without risking product quality, and landed on 65%. After additional testing, we realized that some product parts were much easier to produce from rPP than others, and we therefore decided to introduce rPP step by step.
In the spring of 2022, we were finally able to launch a new sustainable version of Smartloc, containing 45% of rPP.
In 2025, 90% of all polypropylene used at Prevex will be recycled.
After Smartloc, we moved forward to our other water traps and started the introduction of recycled polypropylene in them as well. This is an ongoing project that will last at least until 2025.
Until then, we will continue to increase the amount of rPP, step by step and product part by product part. The overall target is that in 2025, 90% of all polypropylene used at Prevex is of recycled raw material.
