Transportsikring fra Miko Plast

Recycled plastic for safe packing of cargo

Our transport safety products in recycled plastic (RPC) has been published on The Explorer: Greentech from Norway. The official marketplace for norwegian sustainable solutions.

High-density plastic for transport protection leaves a large ecological footprint. Miko Plast’s shipping products, however, are made with 100 per cent recycled materials in a closed-loop process.

Plastic pollution is a growing threat. Greenhouse gas emissions from the plastic product life cycle are expected to reach 1.34 gigatons annually by 2030.

High-density polyethylene (PEHD) and polypropylene (PP) are robust plastics with extensive applications. In the shipping industry, PP and PE are the materials of choice for millions of transport safety products. Although PP and PE are considered non-toxic, they are seldom recycled or re-used, creating huge problems with plastic waste.

High-density recycled plastics

Miko’s plastic products – RPC™, or recycled polymer compound – is made from 100 per cent recycled PP and PE. This means the products are created without using any new fossil resources. Instead, discontinued products and scrap materials are added back into the close-loop production system.

The RPC is engineered to last, thanks to a unique process which maintains the original quality of reclaimed materials. This gives Miko Plast’s Edge Protector™Core Plugs, and other RPC shipping products high durability.

The low-energy, hydro-powered production process is 100 per cent emission-free.

Concrete benefits

Miko’s range of RPC transport safety products prevent loss of goods during transport, even under high loads, high pressure, and during large temperature fluctuations. The reclaimed materials make the products cost-effective, without contributing to the global plastic crisis.

Miko also offers special arrangements for buying back their products once they are no long in use, for further recycling.

Market potential

Miko’s products have a range of applications for cargo protection and are certified by Dekra Automobil GmbH.
