Re>Pal Recycled Plastic Pallets are designed to be cost competitive, high performing and sustainable. Choosing recycled plastic pallets instead of timber pallets offers an alternative to deforestation, reduces carbon emissions and minimizes waste in landfills. Best of all, Re>Pal Pallets are 100% recyclable at end of life. An independent lifecycle assessment comparing our pallets to virgin plastic, softwood and tropical mixed hardwood pallets shows:
  • Manufacturing Re>Pal pallets has a smaller carbon footprint than manufacturing a comparable timber and plastic pallet
  • When use and durability are taken into account, Re>Pal pallets are superior to conventional pallets in all assessed environmental indicators
  • Re>Pal pallets are almost waste neutral; they use almost as much waste during manufacture as the waste that is produced throughout their life cycle, including transport and end of life disposal

Edge Environment Pallet Life Cycle Assessment and Benchmark Report

Download our independent pallet life cycle assessment and benchmark report by Edge Environment for an in-depth analysis of the environmental impacts of different pallet systems. Key indicators include: carbon emissions, energy use, waste output and timber resource use. Additional indicators reported on are acidification eutrophication, fossil fuel depletion, land occupation, human health and ecosystem damage.

'Re>Pal surpasses conventional pallets in all assessed environmental indicators due to their lower replacement requirements, lighter weight and lower emission intensity of production.'
