OUR WASTE REDUCING PROCESSES
OUR PRE-PRESS AND MATERIALS
Direct to screen origination technology gives us the ability to produce very high-quality print and has entirely eliminated the need for film positives. Wherever possible only FSC materials are used.
At Lighthouse Display all print production is carried out using UV Inks. UV Inks lead to less waste and, UV curing units consume less energy than traditional Jet Dryers and use no harmful solvents.
CLOSED LOOP RECYCLING
We have set up a closed loop recycling programme for our polypropylene waste whereby scrap is returned to the mill and used to produce more raw material for us. Not only is this the right choice environmentally, but it is a cost-effective and sound business practice. Adopting this approach also means that there is a lot less visible waste onsite which – in turn, leads to a safer working environment for all our colleagues.
DESIGN WASTE OUT
Over the years we have come to realise that using standard industry sheet sizes can lead to an awful lot of waste, so we standardise our own sheet sizes. Taking this step ensures that we achieve maximum tool coverage and minimal waste. It’s not just our sheets sizes but also our optimal tool layouts that work hand in hand with it. By combining these two processes together ensures that once the unit hits the line waste is minimised!
SO WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
It’s all very well, slinging terminologies, processes and accreditations around… but what does it translate to exactly? Below you’ll see a quick progress chart that demonstrates this perfectly. When you take into consideration that everything we make on site is some form of plastic – 95% (site) recycled waste is a massive achievement!
However, we truly believe that we can do even more!
In the last few years, we have steadily increased our waste recycling and are using more environmentally safe materials than ever before. We want to lead the way in the POS industry and set examples of how manufacturers can operate in environmentally sound ways.
