H&T Presspart’s manufacturing site in Tarragona, Spain has recently joined the voluntary agreement initiative Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS), which is an international programme designed to prevent the loss of plastic granules (pellets, flakes and powders) during handling by the various entities in the plastics value chain and their release into the environment.

By signing the European OCS pledge each pellet-handling company recognises the importance of preventing spillages into the environment and commits to the following six actions:

  • Improve worksite set-up to prevent and address spills
  • Create and publish internal procedures to achieve zero industrial plastic material loss
  • Provide employee training and accountability for spill prevention, containment, clean-up and disposal
  • Audit performance regularly
  • Comply with all applicable state and local regulations governing industrial plastics containment
  • Encourage partners (contractors, transporters, distributors, etc.) to pursue the same goals.

H&T Presspart as a market leader in the supply of injection moulded respiratory drug delivery components and devices including MDI actuators, dry powder inhalers and dispensing actuators, is extremely proud to be joining the initiative as part of our efforts in being a sustainable and environmentally responsible manufacturing business.

Sustainability and environmental management is a key area of focus for H&T Presspart’s business as we continue to limit our impact on the environment and world around us through the implementation of a number of strategies and programmes. By joining Operation Clean Sweep®, we believe H&T Presspart can positively contribute to a more sustainable world for future generations whilst simultaneously conserving wildlife and marine environments.
