Environmental Responsibility

We are proud of our work! We can definitely consider ourselves to be an environmentally responsible company, because we:

  • Collect recyclables, which allows to solve the problem of area pollution;
  • Recycle wastepaper using our own production facilities, which preserves the woods so needed for oxygen production and air cleaning from cutting down;
  • Develop and implement projects both for partners and community aimed at consolidation of efforts to solve environmental issues.

Do You Know?

Do you know that 750 kg of paper can be made from 1 ton of wastepaper, saving:

  • 10 trees;
  • 14 m3 of clean water, which equals to daily consumption of water by 70 people;
  • 1,000 kWh of energy, which is comparable with the operation of 400 lights during a night;
  • 1,700 kg of CO2 which remain unemitted.

How Long Ago did People Start Recycling Wastepaper?

There is a general agreement among historians that the term ‘wastepaper’ appeared when people started making paper using special equipment. A mechanical paper-making machine was invented by Louis-Nicolas Robert in France in 1799. It operated as follows: wastepaper was grinded into smooth mass suitable for making new paper. Such equipment was being improved year by year, and using wastepaper was becoming more and more popular.

It is worth to clear up what wastepaper as a term means. It includes paper products, such as paper and cardboard, which are already unsuitable for use and that is why they are considered as waste. Nowadays, paper is made from wood, primarily, soft wood. Thousands of cubic metres of forest are cut down every year to produce books, magazines and paper. However, it is forest which makes us possible to live on the planet, which produces oxygen. Various types of paper can be made using wastepaper. For example, recyclable materials are widely used in Germany. 61 % of paper in Germany is made from recycled waste.

Why Plastic is Harmful and How Much Time is Required for its Decomposition?

Plastic is an organic material which belongs to non-degradable substances. The average natural decomposition time is 200 years. In our country the landfills use the method of burning. Plastic when burnt releases toxic substances into the air drastically affecting human health and the environment. The only safe method to get rid of such material is to recycle plastic waste using special equipment.

How are Recyclables Used in the World?

Recyclables, including paper, plastic and glass, are most widely used in European countries.

Some statistics: Germany recycles 48 % of waste, Belgium, Sweden – 36 %, Switzerland – 34 %, Russia – no more than 10 %.

Landfills cover more than 70 ths. hectares of land in Russia. On average, one person on our planet produces 500 kg of waste per year. What does such waste include? Watch yourself. The major part of the waste can be recycled!

Nowadays, careful attitude to nature is one of the fundamentals of life-sustaining activity both of any individual and business operation, because the human health and living conditions for future generations depend on the environment.
