A CUSTOMISED
RECYCLING SOLUTION

Protecting the environment is a major concern at Klap. As a manufacturer of single-use health-protection products, we are well aware of the waste we generate. And because we’re not ones to shirk our responsibilities, we’ve created an innovative, sustainable, and long-term solution that gives this waste a second life.

Our turnkey offer for companies invites you to join a virtuous circle that creates added value.

>I BECAUSE THERE CAN ALSO BE A CIRCULAR ECONOMY IN THE HEALTH SECTOR.

WHAT KLAP RECYCLES

We’ve developed a complete recycling system – from collection to recovery – that takes care of a wide range of disposable health-protection equipment.
«ARE YOU MORE POLYPRO OR POLYETHYLENE? »

>I WITH US, NO NEED TO BE JEALOUS: WE RECYCLE BOTH.

Polypropylene and polyethylene (that’s “PP” and “PE” for insiders) are two plastic materials used in the composition of disposable respirator masks (surgical masks and FFP2 NR masks), other single-use personal protective equipment (medical caps, gowns, shoe covers, sheets, etc.), and certain flexible plastic packaging.

OUR RECYCLING ECOSYSTEM

Here are the main links in our recycling ecosystem:

1- COLLECTION
After inspecting your company or collective, we work with you to define your needs and set up the most suitable collection solution (equipment requirements, collection frequency, etc.). We ensure the traceability of your waste: from collection to recovery, you enjoy precise, down-to-the-kilo monitoring, as well as a report on environmental impact.

2- TREATMENT

Once we have collected it, we transport your used protective equipment to a storage and sorting centre (one in France, the other in Switzerland: it’s all good for the carbon footprint!)
Made up of polypropylene and flexible polyethylene, the waste is ground then steam-decontaminated using a patented process. The materials are then automatically sorted through flotation, magnetic separation, or hydrodynamics. All these actions have no environmental impact (no chemical treatment) and no impact on the material (no UV- or Gamma-ray treatment).

3- RECOVERY

The raw material obtained is then transformed using the extrusion-filtration-granulation technique. To put it simply: the plastic is melted to take the form of small balls or granulates which will in turn be used as raw material to make new items out of recycled plastic.

And to close the loop, we offer to transform the waste deposit recovered in your company into a plastic product that meets your needs for the purchasing of recycled products.

LET'S BE RESPONSIBLE TOGETHER
