Sustainability

WASTE MANAGEMENT

An analysis of all waste materials was conducted and ecological actions have been established for all categories ( wood, metal, cardboard and paper, polymers and so forth ). All waste materials are either recycled or reused.

VOC INCINERATOR

All VOCs generated by the solvent based inks from the printing press are incinerated by an RTO ( regenerative thermal oxydizer ) and released into the atmosphere in a non-polluting way.

RECOVERING ENERGY

All heat generated by the RTO is recuperated and used to heat the plant during the winter months, thus saving energy.

RECYCLING SOLVENT

The solvent recovery system processes used solvent into 90% clean solvent which is reused in their printing wash up system.

AUTOMATED SOLVENT DISPENSER SYSTEM

Our printing press is linked to an automated system to supply solvent to and from the printing press which eliminates manual use thereby rendering the task safer and reducing waste.

NOVAFLOW SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATED INK FORMULATION

The ink room is equipped with an ink mixing system for the preparation and matching of PMS colors for their consistency throughout the production runs and to ensure inventory control.

LED LIGHTING

To save on energy and for optimal brightness, the plant is lit up with LED light bulbs.

BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE FILMS

Faspac is in continuous research on new and upcoming ecological and bio films to be part of the solution in sustainable packaging.

Continuous Improvement

Our team lives by the philosophy of questioning the status quo. We are open to new ideas and are constantly searching for improvement opportunities. Our curiosity pushes us to ask questions, explore new ways of doing things and bring innovative tools for continuous improvement.

With the help of a multidisciplinary team, Kaizen Blitzs are conducted for continuous improvement projects whether they be strategic or operational. Their action plan, which is in constant evolution, is fed by the strategic team through rhythmic meetings and interactions with other teams.
