Seco Tools to help close waste loop with carbide recyling project

Seco Tools to help close waste loop with carbide recyling project

Seco Tools has launched a new carbide recycling project which calls on its customers to help close the waste loop and help the company reduce its impact on the environment.

The campaign asks the public to send back their used carbide, inserts, solid drills, solid end mills and wear parts from 1st May to 31st July and for every five kilogrammes collected the firm will donate 1€ (£0.8) to non-profit projects including a global biodiversity hotspot in SouthWest Australia and a 22.5MW wind power project in Rajasthan, India.

The campaign aims to recycle as much raw material as possible, reduce its carbon footprint and increase the efficiency of its manufacturing processes.

Rather than relying on mining virgin material to make its new products, the supplier of carbide cutting tools intends to recycle used materials, as the powder created by the recycling process has the same properties as virgin powder.

In a statement, the company says: "Your used carbide holds value that can be released back to you through recycling programmes. Seco designed the used carbide recycling programme to demonstrate our personal commitment to you and to our shared environment.

"We strive to deliver winning solutions that encourage a safer workplace, support sustainable processes and generate a return on investment while safeguarding our planet for the next generation of manufacturers."
