Placon Corporation [exit DNR]

Placon Corporation Functionally Equivalent to ISO 14001 Tier 1 participant since 06/10/2013

Since 1966, Placon has been a leader in the design and thermoforming of custom and stock food, retail and medical device packaging. Placon’s ongoing efforts in understanding how its business operations impact the earth, has led to significant reductions in the company’s environmental footprint. In 2011, Placon opened its PET (polyethylene terephthalate) recycling facility producing EcoStarĀ® environmentally responsible thin gauge, recycled PET sheet for thermoforming.

Environmental activities

With a genuine commitment to sustainability, Placon’s PET recycling facility was officially opened in 2011 in order to fulfill Placon’s vision of a zero-waste, closed loop recovery and production process. The 70,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility is dedicated to reclaiming post-consumer bottles and thermoforms that were destined for landfills, and turning them into both food and non-food grade recycled PET sheet. Placon’s environmental efforts include:

  • decreasing volatile organic compounds emissions from 7,479 pounds in 2009 to 5,859 pounds in 2011;
  • decreasing regulated and non-regulated waste by nearly 20,000 pounds from 2010 to 2012; and
  • increasing recycling by over 10 million pounds from 2010 to 2012.
