Fraction Energy Services, together with our recycling partners, provide a unique solution to used plastics generated from industrial activities in Western Canada. In cooperation with our partners, we domestically shred, grind and wash LLDPE liners and HDPE materials, reclaiming the polyethylene resin in a 100% environmentally friendly process.
True Environmental Stewardship
Environmental stewards strive to sustain natural resources and our environment for future generations. People depend on natural resources for their livelihood. However, pressures on the environment resulting from development are steadily increasing. Therefore, it is necessary for citizens and the business community to ensure that their activities and operations are environmentally responsible.
In Western Canada, there is currently over 15 million pounds of plastic from pit and tank liners, piping, and other plastic related industrial products going into landfills on an annual basis. Industries are encouraged to promote waste minimization within their operations and are therefore encouraged to develop effective strategies to minimize and effectively handle wastes in a diligent manner.
Recycling is important to the communities and regions where we work. A responsible and efficient approach to reducing environmental impact is essential.
CONSERVES ENERGY & NATURAL RESOURCES
Recycling plastics reduces the amount of energy and natural resources (such as water & petroleum) needed to create virgin plastic.
SAVES LANDFILL SPACE
Recycling plastic products also keeps them out of landfills and allows the plastics to be reused in manufacturing new products. Recycling one ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space.
Liner is clean onsite to remove any dirt, oil, chemical and Non-LLDPE contaminants.
CUT AND ROLLED
Clean liner material is rolled and cut on location
BALED AND STORED
Liner material is picked up and delivered to GES facility to be baled and stored
Baled material is transported to the recycling facility.
Plastic is cleaned, shredded and melted down to reclaim LLDPE resin pellets.
Resin pallets are utilized to make new plastic products, such as garbage cans, recycling bins, buckets, composite, fencing and decking, plastic tanks
