Artekno Ocean – for cleaner oceans
Artekno is the first in the Nordic countries to launch Artekno Ocean cell foam material for transport, packaging and insulation. Artekno Ocean is the first cell foam material of which 15% of the raw material is made of plastic waste collected from sea. Artekno Ocean meets the technical properties of EPP material, and it produces 7% less CO2 emissions compared to the production of virgin material*. Artekno Ocean’s colour is ocean green.
3 ocean plastic waste facts
- According to UN and WWF 15 tons of plastic ends up in oceans every minute
- Around 11% of this plastic waste is caused by marine industry; fishing nets, ropes, trawls and boxes
- If the same trend continues, by 2050 there may be more plastic in the oceans than fish
While plastic has many valuable uses, disposable plastic causes serious environmental harm.
Most of all plastics produced in the world are designed to be single-use-plastics. One of Artekno’s future visions is to look for new business opportunities with plastic material alternatives, to achieve cleaner environment and cleaner oceans.
