Brazil to make new agchem containers from old

The first “post-consumption complete management” of used pesticide containers is under way in Brazil, president Joao Cesar Rando of the recycling organisation, Campo Limpo Reciclagem e Transformacao de Plasticos, told Agrow. “Campo Limpo will capture value generated from recycled empty containers and aim for something new among recyclers,” Mr Rando says. It intends to recycle and turn used containers into new pesticide containers. The plan is to create a “self-sustainable” industry, he enthuses. Containers could also be directed towards use with other chemicals, Mr Rando adds. Campo Limpo was set up last year ( Agrow No 544, p 20) and exists besides the country’s major recycler, the InpEV, which Mr Rando also heads.
