Rubb Group is in the loop when it comes to supporting a European environmental initiative to recycle PVC.
We were approached by our fabric supplier Serge Ferrari, located in Lyon, France, with a proposal to support the Texyloop® process. This specialist green project allows companies that use technical textiles to recycle worn materials and cutting waste, preventing the need for incineration or landfill disposal. The procedure also helps avoid further extraction of raw materials from the Earth.
Rubb Group Managing Director Ian Hindmoor visited the Ferrari manufacturing facility in France. He viewed the material breakdown process there and learned about how the materials were then sent on to the recycling facilities in Italy. He was impressed with this process and the resulting new materials generated through this process.
Ian said: “This process shows just how recyclable the materials used to create Rubb buildings really are. Rubb is dedicated to implementing a sustainable approach to our manufacturing processes and reducing our impact on the environment.” Rubb UK is responsible for collection of scrap and unserviceable fabric material in Gateshead for shipment to Europe.
