Contribution to sustainable development
ESWA, the European Single Ply waterproofing association, contributes to the voluntary commitment of the PVC industry, VinylPlus, by collecting and recycling end of life membranes.
It settled the ROOFCOLLECT® system, which organises collection of waterproofing membranes in most of the European countries.
Vinyloop® gives a second life to post consumer PVC waste.
The Vinyloop PVC recycling process separates the useful PVC compound from other materials (other plastics, rubber, metal, textile...) by selective dissolution and filtration and precipitates it into microgranules of PVC compound. This regenerated PVC compound (R-PVC) that can be re-processed by extrusion, injection or calendaring. The process works on an industrial scale. It is a strong support towards the Voluntary Commitment of the Vinyl Industry.
