UltraTech was the first to recognize the advantage and the reduced impact on the environment that products made of recycled materials could provide. In 1996, we introduced the Economy Model Ultra-Spill Pallet, the first recycled product of its kind in the industry by ANY manufacturer. We’ve since introduced a number of other products in our spill containment and other product lines that have up to 100% recycled content.
We also continue to strive to provide the best quality products available on the market. So to insure that our recycled Eco-Smart products meet the tough standards of the rest of our line, we will only use our own scrap material in our containment products. In other words, we know exactly what’s going into our products. We will not buy recycled resin from an unknown source or with no known heat history. It is impossible to know what the structural integrity of a recycled containment product is if you don’t know what it is made from.
Throughout our website, you will see the Eco-Smart logo telling you that the product that it is on has up to 100% recycled content. Because of resin availability, production and other manufacturing variables, the exact percentages of recycled material for a product at any given time, can vary somewhat. Eco-Smart is also used to designate products that are bio-degradable, phosphorus-free, use natural materials or assist in recycling. Please feel free to contact us for more specific numbers and information.
"Recyclable" is NOT the same thing as "Recycled". Make sure you know what you are getting when searching for an eco-friendly spill containment product.
ECO-FRIENDLYTM — Made with up to 100% of recycled resin for environmentally smart and friendly production.
ECO-NOMICALTM — Made with a cost-effective method and recycled material for smart savings.
ECO-LOGICALTM — Certain load-bearing spill-containment products may not be safe when using 100% recycled resins. By logically blending the smart amount of virgin resin with recycled resin, UltraTech products offer maximum safety, structural integrity, and long life that cannot be achieved by 100% recycled blends.
