Title (EN) RECYCLE SHIPPING ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE BOITE RECYCLABLE POUR LE TRANSPORT
Abstract:
(EN) A cushioned shipping assembly (20) includes a corrugated carton (22) and foam inserts (27) which are returned by an end user to the fabricator. In some embodiments, the carton collapses to a diminished size for return. The fabricator refurbishes the components, recycling aged or spent pieces. Preferably polyolefin foams, olefin-based adhesives and coatings, and wood fiber-based corrugated material make up the cushioned system, and one component is compatible with recycling processes of others. The fabricator may perform on-premises pelletizing of reclaimed polymer, thus providing a more efficient, environmentally clean system.
(FR) Un ensemble de boîte à coussins de mousse pour le transport (20) comprend un carton ondulé (22) et des pièces encastrées de mousse (27) que l'utilisateur final retourne au fabricant. Dans certaines versions, le carton se replie afin de prendre un encombrement réduit pour le renvoi. Le fabricant remet à neuf les composants, en recyclant les parties usagées ou usées. Le système de coussinets est préférablement réalisé avec des mousses de polyoléfine, des revêtements et des agents adhésifs à base d'oléfine et des matériaux ondulés à base de fibres ligneuses, un composant étant compatible avec les procédés de recyclage des autres composants. Le fabricant peut effectuer le pastillage sur place du polymère récupéré, ce qui offre alors un système plus efficace et plus propre au niveau de l'environnement.
