Campo Limpo recycled agchem containers assembled

Operations at the new Brazilian recycling operation, Campo Limpo, are under way, its president Joao Rando told Agrow. It was set up last year ( Agrow No 544, p 20) and exists alongside the country’s major recycler, the inpEV. Campo Limpo recycles and turns used containers into new pesticide containers. It won an award last month for its 20 litre plastic “tirex” container, which it has produced from recycled resin from empty pesticide containers. The Brazilian magazine, Embalagem Marca, gave the product its 2009 best container prize, noting its lower costs, material use, and environmental impact. Production started earlier this year and it has been granted UN certification. The new containers are composed of three layers. The recycled element comprises 70-80% of the new container and is sandwiched between two virgin layers.
