Respect for environment

PVC is one of the most technically and scientifically researched products, certified to meet special requirements aimed at ensuring its compatibility with environment and human health. Suffice it to say that the technological advancements in the PVC industry have become the reference point for international institutions. Unlike other plastic polymers, PVC consists of 57% salt and only 43% oil (38% carbon and 5% hydrogen). The electrolysis of sodium chloride (the common table salt) results in the manufacture of caustic soda and chlorine, the most abundant halogen compound in nature. As only 38% of its molecular weight is carbon, PVC is intrinsically a low carbon plastic, which means significantly reduced CO2 emissions than other plastic polymers. The use of all the additives necessary to achieve the significant properties are standardized by the Reach Regulation and most of them are of biological origin. Sidef does not make use of any toxic raw materials in the production of its compounds. The packaging consists of 60% recycled paper and the industrial process water is recovered, filtered and reused continuously to avoid waste.

PVC regeneration

Our plant in the province of Teramo deals with the regeneration of PVC and pursue the objective of minimizing the environmental impacts. The material comes from the collection of post-consumer waste and scraps, which are carefully recovered, sorted and regenerated. This allows us to know exactly what is undergoing reprocessing and to ensure that our 2 million kilos of regenerated compounds do not contain hazardous chemicals.PVC can be regenerated over and over again and result in no loss in performance; furthermore, it can be recycled into useful objects for society through extremely low consumption of fossil fuels and emissions, allowing CO2 savings up to 92% and primary energy demand between 45 and 90% less than the production of virgin PVC, depending on its formulation.

Energy saving

The investments made in the last three years have led us to reduce our energy demand by 16%, focusing on fleet renewal through the acquisition of environmentally-friendly equipment in line with Industry 4.0, a change processes directing towards close cooperation between machines and human beings in order to increase operational efficiency and reduce waste.

Zero emissions

SIDEF does not involve any chemical reaction in the production process. This makes the plant essentially free from harmful emissions.
