Recycling IBC-containers with the Ebbecke sustainability concept
The amount of single-use IBC containers was a challenge our company had to face in the recent past. The manufacturer’s established return system often no longer worked for sticky or deformed containers, making it necessary to scrap them. In order to optimize this process in accordance with our „Let’s go green together“ concept, our Ebbecke sustainability team stood in to fulfill this task. The result being a waste management concept, wherein the tote is removed from the metal cage and recycled via a plastic recycling company. The metal cages are re-purposed – they are for example popular with people who are looking to store and dry firewood. This minimizes energy consumption and waste. Just one example for our company’s environmentally friendly philosophy.
