EU regulations stipulate that only 10% of all municipal waste may be landfilled in Latvia by 2035. Currently, on average 40% of all municipal waste is landfilled in Latvia.

THERMAL INSULATION MATERIAL:

WE ARE LAUNCHING PRODUCTION TESTS FOR THERMAL INSULATION MATERIAL

The pilot production line has been completed and the equipment has been tested for safety. The production of the innovative thermal insulation material has therefore been quickly launched simultaneously with process testing of the production line. We aim to develop the optimal product formulation with the best possible technical properties – density, thermal conductivity, air and sound permeability.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERMIT FOR THE START OF PRODUCTION HAS RECEIVED

Balticfloc has received a Category B environmental permit for the operation of a new pilot production line. With the permit, testing of the production line and development tests of the innovative thermal insulation material have started, working on the perfect product recipe.

Balticfloc already holds a category B environmental permit as it has been manufacturing various products from recycled waste paper for several years. However, the document had to be supplemented by the specifications of the new production line, which was set up as part of the LIFE project.
