Clean sweep

We have reported previously on our support for Operation Clean Sweep – an initiative to reduce plastic waste. One issue facing the plastics industry is the loss of plastic pellets; work to address this in our business has resulted in our Wombwell Specialist Plastics team developing a new product: a gully filter incorporating a gauze which catches pellets. Prototypes are under test at our Wombwell and Tipton sites; once successfully trialled, they will be fitted across all our plastic sites… and available to third parties facing the same issue.
