ALPLA makes three production sites in Germany climate neutral

November 08/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- ALPLA has made production at three of its facilities climate neutral, said the company.

The sites in Exter, Lubeck and Foritztal in Germany have all been made climate neutral in accordance with Scopes 1 and 2 using carbon certificates. The project began earlier this year with the aim of reducing carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions, and the first step was to convert to green electricity.

This move reduced emissions from around 22,000 tonnes of CO2e emitted in 2020 to just under 2,000 tonnes of Scopes 1 and 2 CO2e emitted in 2021, the equivalent of running 4,400 passenger vehicles a year. In order to offset the remaining 2,000 tonnes of CO2e emitted, carbon certificates were purchased to make the plants carbon neutral in accordance with Scopes 1 and 2.

A further 500 tonnes of CO2e were voluntarily offset through a reforestation programme, supporting damaged areas and preservation of the forest in Bosingfeld, around 30km from the Exter plant, covering an area of 1.25 hectares.

As MRC informed earlier, ALPLA will build a new 23,000 square-metre manufacturing plant in Kansas City, Missouri. ALPLA  Group, a global packaging solutions manufacturer and recycling specialist headquartered in Hard, Austria, announced that it has selected the Kansas City region for its new 23,000-square-metre manufacturing plant.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,638,370 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, up by 10% year on year. Shipments of all grades of ethylene polymers increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 989,570 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, up by 30% year on year. Deliveries of homopolymer PP and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased, whereas shipments of injection moulding PP random copolymers decreased significantly.

ALPLA , with about 21,600 employees, produces custom-made packaging systems, bottles, caps and moulded parts at 178 sites across 45 countries. It also operates recycling plants for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high density polyethylene (HDPE).
