Operation Clean Sweep - zero pellet loss!
Polish Union of Plastics Converters promotes the activities to reduce the impact of industry on the environment. A perfect example of this is an agreement that our organisation signed to promote Operation Clean Sweep® in Poland. OCS is an effective tool to reduce the presence of microplastics in the environment. While consumers should limit the impact of waste, the entrepreneurs have now a possibility to limit the penetration of the raw materials into the water bodies.
Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) provides guidance to managers in production and transportation in aim to reduce a possible accidental loss of pellet, flakes and powder. The reduction of such loss has been included in the "Marine Litter Solutions Statement". "The Strategy for Plastics" (prepared by EU) also highlights the problem, calling the industry to take voluntary actions to reduce the losses of raw materials.
The loss of microplastics is a very important issue, especially for marine fauna (i.e. seabirds, fishes and turtles swallow microplastics and devastate their health and life). We encourage companies to join the programme in Poland. By signing the declaration you can implement OCS in your company.
