Molok® takes care of the environment in a responsible way
Our goal is to manufacture high-quality and durable products utilizing sustainable procedures. That is why we constantly do development work to find even more sustainable methods. Below are listed our most notable factors from our ecological operations.
Our products are high quality and have long lifecycles, even 30 years for our container bodies. Comprehensive maintenance and spare part services enable products to be repaired and upgraded.
Due to the high capacity and natural compaction of the waste, our containers are emptied less frequently. This leads to fewer waste trucks causing traffic jams, lower fuel usage and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
We manufacture our products from high quality materials such as polyethylene resin, a durable and corrosion-free material that is recyclable after use.
Our production process utilizes raw material recycling line to reclaim plastic cutting waste. We use recycled upholstery materials in our products: recycled plastics and composite made of recycled plastic and paper.
Various collecting methods of recycling have been the subjects of the studies in Finland and Sweden.* Based on the results, the collection method using our containers increased recycling remarkably and had the smallest environmental impact.
Our operations are certified in the areas of quality (ISO 9001), environment (ISO 14001) and occupational safety (ISO 45001).
