Turning carton packaging into raw material
Carton taken to a Rinki eco take-back point is transported to a warehouse for baling. The bales are transported to a carton mill to be used as raw material, and carton fibre as well as plastic and aluminium coatings are separated from the carton.
Recycled carton is used as material for corrugated cardboard, packaging cardboard, envelopes, laminated paper and various types of cores.
The coating removed from carton fibre is mainly plastic. The coating is dried and taken to a power plant for energy production. Some of the aluminium coating in the carton packaging is separated and recycled as a raw material for new products.
