Did you know that Sweden and Germany are the world leaders in the recycling of plastic products? At Polynova Nissen, we strive only to use products that do not harm the environment, and the majority of our products are made of polyethylene (PE).

Polyethylene is a completely organic material

Polyethylene is a completely organic material, and its production is exceptionally energy‑efficient. The low weight of the plastic means less impact on the environment thanks to lighter shipments, as well as reducing the total weight of stocked items. Recycled polyethylene preserves the environment.

Polyethylene can be recycled several times

All products made of polyethylene can be recycled several times before they are finally combusted in a power plant. During combustion of polyethylene a high level of clean energy is produced. This helps maintain a sufficient temperature to obviate the need for addition of other fuels, e.g. oil and gas. The only by-products from the combustion of polyethylene are carbon dioxide and water.

Recycled polyethylene preserves the environment

Many of Polynova Nissen’s products are produced using 100% recycled material. Our new PolyBLUE bags are our most eco-friendly garbage bags, consisting of 100% PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) LD-polyethylene. It is branded with the Blue Angel, which is the oldest environmental branding in the world, founded in Germany in 1978.

Also, keep an eye out for our biologically degradable plastic bags and sacks under the name polyNATURE.
