At Adelphi, we believe you can elevate today’s production performance without sacrificing tomorrow’s resources.
We utilise high grade stainless steel as an alternative to plastics, both in our process equipment and, where applicable, in machine components.
“Stainless steel is one of the most environmentally efficient raw materials available”, states Life Without Plastics, “because of its durability and ability to be recycled” –
- Over the past twenty years, improved process technology has enabled manufacturers to significantly reduce the quantities of energy required to produce stainless steel.
- Stainless steel products should last an extremely long time under normal usage.
- Even once their service life is over or they become irreparably damaged, stainless steel items should never enter the waste stream. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and can be reused to make new products without loss of any of the original properties, such as tensile strength, ductilityand corrosion-resistance.
- On average, most stainless steel items are made of approximately 60% recycled material, with 25% of that derived from end-of-life products, and the other 35% from manufacturing processes.
Comparatively, they assert, “plastics break down much faster and in the process may release dangerous synthetic chemicals, including endrocrine disruptors such as bishphenol A (BPA)”. Plastic production and manufacturing are extremely polluting and energy-intensive processes.
