“Operation Clean Sweep” arrives in the RadiciGroup Synthetic Fibres Business Area

  • Zero plastic pellet and dust loss to safeguard the environment.
  • Noyfil SA receives OCS certificate from Plastics Europe.
  • At K Fair 2019, workshop on microplastics

“We are preparing a plan to extend the OCS programme gradually to all Group companies,” said Filippo Servalli, sustainability director of RadiciGroup, “taking into account the fact that all our industrial processes in our various business areas have already been set up to reduce any loss of microplastics. What’s more, in the fibres sector, RadiciGroup specializes in the production of both nylon and polyester continuous yarn that feature high performance and lower environmental impact.”

This coming autumn, there will be another opportunity to learn more about Operation Clean Sweep and the topic of microplastics. At the K Fair – the important triennial plastics and rubber exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany (October 16 – 23, 2019)–, RadiciGroup will host a workshop entitled “Zero Pellet Loss. A value chain commitment” on October 22, 2019 at 11.30 AM (RadiciGroup stand – Hall 6 B10). To register click here
