RadiciGroup expands its Operation Clean Sweep project


RadiciGroup has expanded its Operation Clean Sweep project – started up over one year ago in its engineering polymers business – to its Synthetic Fibres Business Area. Noyfil SA (Stabio – CH), a company specializing in the manufacture of continuous polyester yarns, has joined Operation Clean Sweep (OCS), an international programme promoted by Plastics Europe with the goal of “Zero Pellet Loss”.

After signing a commitment to OCS with Plastics Europe and carrying out a first assessment, Noyfil SA is now moving ahead on steps 3 and 4 of the project: upgrading by implementing improvement actions and raising awareness by training all people concerned to give them a better understanding of the importance of OCS, and ensuring that they take ownership of the improvement process. Noyfil’s commitment to Operation Clean Sweep is another significant step on the road to RadiciGroup Sustainability, with the objective of continual improvement to reduce the environmental impact of its business activities.

This coming autumn, there will be another opportunity to learn more about Operation Clean Sweep and the topic of microplastics. At the K Fair – the important triennial plastics and rubber exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany – RadiciGroup will host a workshop entitled “Zero Pellet Loss. A value chain commitment” on 22 October.
