AION partners with Nutreco and Skretting to tackle pallet waste in industry
AION is proud to announce the collaboration with Skretting and Nutreco on circular plastic pallets, where their big fishmeal bags will be recycled and repurposed into plastic pallets.
AION circular plastic pallets are a unique combination of major performance and cost-efficiency gains together with pioneering material circularity and CO2 mitigation.
In June 2022, we announced the collaboration with Nutreco and Skretting, where we work together to trigger waste reduction and carbon reductions for the seafood and ocean industries. Replacing short lived wood pallets with robust circular plastic pallets also reduces costs in our customers value chains, and it's also a part of the transfer into the circular economy.
"By replacing wood pallets with Aion's circular plastic pallets for this route, Aker BioMarine will gain an estimated 84 percent reduction in carbon emissions, and a 50 percent reduction in costs over the 10-year lifespan of the pallets,” - Runa Haug Khory, CEO of AION
At AION, we can produce high-quality, high-performance pallets that can:
- Save 84% CO2 emissions 🌎
- 90-95% waste reduction ♻
- Between 20-50% cost reduction 🚀
- Make operations smarter, easier, and safer ✅
“For many industries, including the seafood industry, collaboration between parties is vital to drive sustainable change" - Paul Bestford, Chief Procurement Officer at Nutreco
