Lysi is leading in plastic recycling

10.02.2020

Lysi is proud to be a co-founder of the Pure North Recycling, a project that aims to inspire companies in Iceland to recycle plastic and reduce their carbon footprint.

All plastic that is used in Lysi‘s operations is recycled into plastic pallets using only geothermal and other eco-friendly energy. These recycling methods, based on Icelandic innovation, are unique worldwide. Third-party tests have shown that the processes result in the world's most eco-friendly plastic. For each metric ton of plastic that is recycled, 0.7 metric tons of carbon is saved. Additionally, for each metric ton of recycled plastic, 1.8 tons of crude oil is saved, due to the extensive amounts of crude oil required in the production of new plastic. 

The project is a significant part of Lysi‘s environmental and sustainability policy. We are proud to be not only active, but also proactive in the protection of nature.
