Recycled plastics

Plastics have an image problem, for example due to the plastic soup in our oceans. However, in many cases plastic is a more environmentally friendly choice than the alternative and developments in the field of recycling and making products biodegradable are moving rapidly.

Most plastics are easy to recycle. At Lakwijk we separate the sawing residues and production residues and these are returned to the manufacturers' production process. Lakwijk also has recycled plastics in its range. Many materials that are in stock as standard semi-finished products have already been produced from recycled raw materials. If material is properly separated, a high-quality semi-finished product can often be produced.

In addition to recycling, a lot of research is also being conducted into developing plastics made from organic material. These plastics are then biodegradable. We closely monitor developments and as soon as these materials are technically high enough for our customers' applications, we will include these materials in our range.


Lakwijk also works with Govaerts Recycling and carries this company's range as part of our range. Take a look at WWW.GOVAERTSRECYCLING.BE to see what is possible in this area.
