TONON FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Sustainable development meets the needs of present generations without compromising the possibility for future generations to meet their needs, a process where the resource management, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional changes live in complete harmony and increase current and future capabilities to satisfy human needs and ambitions.
For this reason, we decided to use only recyclable materials like Aluminium and High Density Polyethylene to manufacture our products. For example, Polyethylene and Aluminium are used for the production of a new plastic material, the Ecoallene®.
This versatile and durable plastic material, is packaged and sold in the form of granules and it’s suitable for use in various sectors of the plastic molding. In Germany, polyethylene and aluminium are used as catalysts in cement kilns. The mixture of polymers and aluminium refuels the furnaces as a form of alternative fuel, usually replacing coal.
In Brazil, a patented machine cleans polyethylene and aluminium in the process of recycling paper. This machine allow higher efficiency in the fiber salvage, and, at the same time, better quality pellets for injection molding. The combined properties of polymers and aluminium allow the production of cardboard sheets to be used in construction.
