What is an Eco-Industrial Manufacturer?

Jul 2, 2020 | Go Green

A company that is considered “eco-industrial” has more involved than just efficiency. Eco-industrial manufacturing goes beyond the basics of complying with the law, cutting waste and operating efficiency. These companies take environmental considerations into all aspects of their operations; RubberForm Recycled Products is one of these “Eco-Industrial” manufacturers.

The “Eco-industrial” concept has one goal in mind; to make industrial manufacturing processes cleaner and more sustainable. This is accomplished by emulating how nature deals with waste, through reduction, recycling and reuse. In nature, the waste output of one organism becomes the nutrient input of another organism, so that all of earth’s nutrients are endlessly recycled. Eco-industrial companies display this idea exactly; the wastes of one manufacturer become raw materials for another. Companies may also recycle and reuse most materials and chemicals used in industries instead of dumping them into the environment. These practices use less raw material and energy while cutting pollution and waste at the same time.

In addition to these practices, a company can further exemplify “Eco-Industrial” practices by locating itself on rehabilitated damaged sites – vacant property, reusing old –recycled machinery, using eco-distribution channels and creating products that conserve energy and other precious resources. This is taken into consideration through raw materials acquisition, production, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, transportation of finished goods, reuse, operation, maintenance and proper disposal of the waste.
