Eco-design of rubber: with Ogreen we reduce co2 emissions, generate less waste and consume less virgin raw material

Oldrati Group has always been committed to the research of innovative processes for the creation of rubber, plastic and silicone materials that are eco-sustainable and, on the occasion of the month dedicated to the Environment, recalls the importance of continuing to conduct research and development projects within the circular economy.

The company, especially in recent years, has ensured that sustainability, waste reduction policies and the use of energy from renewable sources have become an integral part of the corporate strategy, with the aim of combining attention to the environment, innovation and business objectives.

One of the main purposes of the month dedicated to the Environment is to raise awareness of existing environmental problems and to encourage citizens around the world to become aware of everyone’s responsibility for the protection of the planet. If on the one hand it is not possible to go back, on the other hand the “simple” recycling of raw materials is no longer sufficient.

For this reason, it has become essential for companies to adopt an eco-design approach, i.e. to pay more and more attention to the entire process of initial conception and design of articles of common use, in order to minimize the environmental impact during the entire life cycle both in the initial phase, reducing the consumption of virgin raw materials, and in the production phase, reducing the expenditure of energy required for the operation of machinery and then during the end of life, thus promoting a process of circular economy.

An example is Ogreen, the first regenerated and eco-sustainable rubber of Oldrati Group that allows to limit the production of waste and the consumption of virgin raw material, with consequent reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

Producing with a methodology based on eco-design means planning and managing the end of life of each product and therefore the very moment in which waste is created: this is a theme of extreme importance also for rubber, an indispensable material that today can be recovered and regenerated to create new products. For the production of Ogreen, the Group uses processes and resources aimed not only at structuring a circular rubber economy, but also at ensuring excellent performance levels.

At full capacity, Oldrati Group’s industrial capacity allows to regenerate about 1,200 tons of rubber per year, with a consequent reduction of the environmental impact: an important evidence of how innovation and synergies can really lead to the creation of concrete solutions for the safeguard of the planet.

Choosing to work from an eco-design approach means choosing to protect the environment even before a product is made, because the question to be answered is no longer “how to recycle?” but rather “how to produce sustainably?”
