Transforming the Pharma, Cosmetics, and Chemical Industries with Sustainable Solutions

In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, sustainability is no longer a choice but a necessity. Schoeller Allibert is at the forefront of ushering in a greener and more efficient future for the Pharma, Cosmetics, and Chemical sectors. With a keen focus on circular solutions and innovative products, Schoeller Allibert is redefining how these industries approach packaging, storage, and logistics.

Supporting Sustainability Goals

Schoeller Allibert is unwavering in its commitment to helping customers achieve their sustainability objectives. Through data-driven solutions, advocating for plastic over wood, reducing virgin plastic consumption with CircuLine® assets, and enhancing traceability and efficiency with SmartLink, Schoeller Allibert stands as a reliable partner in this collective sustainability journey.

Sustainable Alternatives: A Circular Approach

Schoeller Allibert's dedication to sustainability extends beyond its own operations, as the company actively supports its customers in reducing their carbon footprints. The company specializes in designing packaging, storage, and logistics solutions that are inherently efficient and circular in nature. Their products are known for their strength, durability, lightweight nature, and the remarkable ability to be reused for up to 15 years before achieving a full 100% recycling rate.

These reusable packaging systems play a pivotal role in reducing waste and promoting recycling, addressing a global issue – single-use plastics. While consumer products like plastic bags and bottles frequently steal the spotlight, Schoeller Allibert recognizes the substantial waste generated by single-use transport packaging, often concealed from the public eye.

Sustainability, Safety, and Durability: Plastic Pallets vs. Wooden Pallets

Schoeller Allibert champions a critical move to combat deforestation by advocating for plastic pallets over their wooden counterparts. Traditional wooden pallets are known contributors to deforestation, whereas plastic pallets represent a more sustainable alternative.

Plastic pallets offer exceptional repairability and versatility, with options like the BaYoPal® and RackPal being easily repairable. Beyond this, they bring operational advantages such as space-saving functionality, reducing shipping trips and costs, and contributing to a lower carbon footprint. The paramount focus on safety for employees and operators sets plastic pallets apart, as they lack common hazards like splinters, fungus, bacteria, or rusty nails typically associated with wooden pallets.

However, the most significant difference lies in their lifespan. Wooden pallets have a limited service life, usually around 10 trips before they start to splinter or fall apart. In stark contrast, plastic pallets can average 250 trips before requiring replacement or repair. These advantages position plastic pallets as the ultimate choice for sustainability, safety, and durability within the logistics realm.

CircuLine®: Sustainable Innovation for the Chemical Industry

Schoeller Allibert's CircuLine® range of products contain recycled plastic - reducing virgin plastic consumption and consequently giving enhanced opportunity to reuse the earth’s natural resources to their full extent. CircuLine® provides a simple way for businesses to reduce the overall environmental impact of handling and logistics through the supply chain, without compromising on performance.

When it comes to sustainable packaging solutions in the Chemical Industry, CircuLine® Pallets are the ideal choice. Meticulously designed with both precision and environmental responsibility in mind, these pallets seamlessly cater to the sector's specific needs.
