SOLVENT EMISSIONS REDUCTION
Perfect Plastic has achieved 100% production of lithographic output using UV curable inks which produce no volatile organic emissions. Additionally, our use of solvent-borne screen inks has been reduced to 5% (95% waterborne or UV curable technology).
SHEET AND CARD SCRAP REDUCTION
Perfect Plastic has a comprehensive scrap reduction initiative in place. Sheet stock is allocated per customer order to the presses. All waste schedules have been reduced several times in core stock allocation. Maintenance programs are built into the schedules further improving waste reduction.
FACILITIES ENERGY SAVINGS INITIATIVES
Energy intensive equipment are routinely serviced to improve energy efficiency and reliability. We are systematically replacing electrical devices in the plant with more energy-efficient versions. The plant illumination system has been upgraded to high-efficiency CFL technology.
OVERS SHIPPING POLICY
To meet order fulfillment requirements, we plan a percentage of overproduction. This can result in additional cards above that which the customer ordered. It is our policy that we will ship up to 10% over the Customer’s order quantity, thereby saving these additional cards from immediately being put into the waste stream.
EXPENDED CARD AND OBSOLETE INVENTORY RETURN PROGRAM
Perfect Plastic Printing is authorized to destroy secure credit cards returned through financial customers. Arrangements can be made through the Customer Service Department.
