To perform the diagnosis of the industrial waste and provide the solution for the disposal, this is the purpose of the Right Destination Program. Through its logistics operator, Purcom collects, separates and transports to the transformer, returning the waste to the production cycle, with physical recycling.
Besides offering a competitive raw material, with availability, be it from industrial waste or post-consumption products, the Easy Recycling Program offers to the responsible for the recycling a number of chemical products that allow more efficiency in the transformation of new materials. In some cases, like discarded mattresses, with bactericide.
The development and state of the art of the Reverse Logistics Program by Purcom is the Close Cycle Program. It consists in extracting, at first, from rigid and flexible foam, basic polyol through Purcom’s chemical recycling technology. The recycled polyol that was obtained is incorporated in the right amount into the formulated polyol and will return to the transformer, which will use it normally in its production process. This technology ensures all chemical and physical properties of the polyurethane system.

When it became aware of
all the advantages of the
Reverse Logistics presented by
Purcom, Randon, the largest
trailer and semi-trailer
manufacturer in Latin
America, decided to reuse the
surplus of the rigid polyurethane
applied to the filling of
thermal panels of
cold storage trucks.
Due to Reverse Logistics, surplus of the
polyurethane used by Randon, which previously
generated destination costs and environmental
impact on landfill, is now used in the creation
of traffic signaling parts. Also,
they create jobs and more economic activity.
Prior to learning about the Reverse Logistics
developed by Purcom, the disposal of the
surplus of 1 kg of PU by Randon used to cost
around R$10. Currently, this expense became an
economic, social and environmental benefit.
