Repair vs Replace Plastics
At SMART we are passionate about the environment and reducing the volume of automotive plastic waste our partners send to landfill. The recent global push for businesses to be more sustainable, better manage their parts waste, and increase their reuse ratio has intensified. SMART provides our partners the ability to contribute to the environment by reusing more plastic parts through our advanced plastic repair processes and specialty tools.
Did you know?
Plastics are made from raw materials like natural gas, oil and plants, which are refined into ethane and propane. The polymerization process turns these components into plastics through heating and molding processes.
Recycling one ( 1 ) ton of plastic can avoid the emissions of 2.5 tons of CO2 when produced from virgin raw materials.
