- About us
Sustainability is an important topic in the plastics industry. The producers with whom Lakwijk cooperates, for example, are structurally working to increase the lifespan of their plastics. Plastic production is also becoming more and more circular because recycling is an increasingly larger source of raw materials compared to, for example, petroleum. Also bio-plastics; materials made from natural fibers will continue to develop.
Lakwijk is active in two respects when it comes to sustainability. Firstly, when providing technical advice to customers, Lakwijk always asks itself how plastic parts can be lighter without sacrificing functionality, and advice on the most sustainable solution for the application is self-evident. Secondly, Lakwijk keeps a close eye on the development in the field of bioplastics as well as biofibers in composites instead of more traditional glass or carbon fibers.
