THE EM LABEX IN A GREEN WORLD
Plastic in a sustainable world
Plastic’s popularity has been on a steady rise over the last decades. Thanks to its low cost and its versatility, it is used in every industry today. You can find plastic in almost all of our common household items; be it the container for our food and beverage, diapers, furniture, computers, and cars, just to name a few. Its resistance to moisture and bacteria makes it ideal for packaging. While its flexible nature makes it easily tailored to any purpose.
However, this increase in plastic can also cause numerous problems for our environment. Much of this plastic is not recycled in the proper way and thus results in pollution. As a result of the duality between plastics’ popularity and the demand for sustainability. Plastic companies have an increased need for testing their polymer formulas and materials.
The team behind the EM LabEx also saw it as a critical issue to combat. Therefore, we created the small test laboratory extruder with a vision in mind. To be a sustainable, easy to use, and reliable machine that can test biodegradable- and recycled extracts.
Thanks to our collaboration with Schneider Electric, who delivers our electrical components. We have achieved our goal, creating a machine that can function and operate for many hours without interruptions. A machine that is easy to install and to use.
Schneider Electric was announced as the number one sustainable business on a global scale by Corporate Knights. This made them an easy choice for us as our number one supplier for the EM LabEx.
