Sustainability

Sustainability

Celuform has served the local authority, social housing and new build markets since being established in 1972. Our committed focus on helping housing professionals has meant the welcome modernising of construction practice as demanded by the Egan Review of Skills for Sustainable Communities. All Celuform products have been designed in a format similar to timber and include roofline, cladding and window trims.

The company has always considered the environmental impact of its operations and products. Celuform’s policy is to minimise pollution by recycling waste material. The company operates a production quality management system to BS EN ISO9001, which includes design and the process of material development. Each Celuform product group has been assessed by the British Board of Agrement as meeting the British Building Regulation requirements for building products in use. Product accreditations and guarantees are indicators of a product whole life cost and of the confidence a manufacturer has of the fitness for purpose of his products.

Incentives to stimulate collection and recycling

Recovinyl provides financial incentives to support the collection of PVC waste from the non-regulated PVC waste streams. Its aim is to ensure a steady supply of post-consumer PVC waste for recycling in Europe. The non-regulated streams are those not covered by any existing legislation like Packaging, ELV (End of Life Vehicles) or WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directives.
We work with a wide range of partners: consumers, businesses, municipalities, waste management companies and recyclers, as well as the European Commission and national and local governments.
We will subsidise those, who collect PVC waste and send it to accredited waste recovery companies and recyclers. The payments of incentive help to make up for the higher cost of recycling in comparison with other end-of-life solutions, such as landfill. The incentive system aims as well to encourage the recycling of PVC products on an industrial scale.

PVC, a Recyclable Material

Fit for Recycling

PVC compounds are 100% recyclable physically, chemically or energetically. After mechanical separation, grinding, washing and treatment to eliminate impurities, it is reprocessed using various techniques (granulated or powder) and reused in the production.
PVC products serve long useful lives which diminishes the waste production in case when less durable products are used.
