  1. IPA Presentation to Why Waste Seminar 25th February 2010by Phil PeaseIPA Chief Executive Officer The Industrial Packaging Association www.theipa.co.uk

  2. Phil Pease • Chartered Wastes Manager Specialty: Clinical & Hazardous Wastes Treatment • Member Chartered Institute of Wastes Management • Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser • CEO Industrial Packaging Association • Chair: of DfT Packaging Scheme Review Committee • Chair: British Standards Institution (BSI) Committees for - “Drums” & “Packaging and The Environment” Also…. Instructor-Trainer for First Aid at Work ….and Scuba Diving Instruction !!! www.theipa.co.uk

  3. Purchase, Re-Use and Disposal Options for • Industrial Packaging • Treatment Options for used Industrial Packaging • UN & ADR Transport Regulations for Industrial • Packaging Re-Use • Consignment issues: • Dangerous Goods vs Hazardous Wastes • Local opportunities lost ? / to be gained? • The Future…. www.theipa.co.uk

  4. Purchase, Re-Use and Disposal Options for Industrial Packaging www.theipa.co.uk

  5. Not just Chemical Company Packaging of course... • Drinks Manufacturers: Fruit Juice Concentrates = Flammable • Soaps & Detergents: Concentrates = Corrosive • Perfume Manufacturers: Concentrates = Irritant / Flammable • Resins & Adhesives: Base Products = Flammable & Toxic • Engineering : Mineral Oils = Hazardous Waste • All Manufacturing Sectors: Paints, Adhesives, Lubricants www.theipa.co.uk

  6. World-Wide Re-Use Infrastructure IPA JDRA EIPA RIPA ICCR RCMASA AOSD www.theipa.co.uk

  7. Purchase & Use of Industrial Packaging Gaining real benefit from understanding Life Cycle Value Review of a true situation.... • Company’s Purchaser requires lowest cost 1000 litre IBC for • non hazardous hair-care product base. • Handling approx’ 10,000 units per year. • Options are: • 1. 1000 ltr, UN Approved, Metal Base, with Ball or Ball Valve @ £75 • 2. 1000 ltr, Non UN, Wood Base with Butterfly Valve @ £65 • Option 2 has a face value saving of £10 per unit x 10,000 = • Saving of £100k per year - quite significant ! • ...or so you might think....... www.theipa.co.uk

  8. .....Company’s actual position: • Following use, the IBCs require disposal – with following options: • The Option 1 IBCs retain a market value for re-use as a UN container. • Typical Market Value: circa £17 credit • The Option 2 IBCs retain little / if any market value as not permitted • for hazardous (UN) products, or even for food products. • Nil re-use market = disposal options only, hence represent a cost: • Typical Market Cost: circa £10 charge • Original saving of £10 per unit must be balanced against loss of • £17 value at end of life plus a £10 cost for disposal • Result: Perceived saving of £10 is actually negated by disposal costs plus • the further loss of £17 value – so true position shows that • Option 2 actually represents a net loss of £17 per unit • or £170,000 .......now that’s REALLY significant!!! www.theipa.co.uk

  9. Purchase Considerations should include: • UN & ADR Dangerous Goods Transport • Disposal Options for Used Packaging • Re-Use options (in-house or 3rd Party) • Hazardous Waste Consignment • International Service Provision www.theipa.co.uk

  10. Treatment Options for Used Packaging • The IPArepresents UK and European leading Manufacturers and Reconditioners of Drums and IBCs. • These companies typically offer: • Drums and IBCs in Steel, Plastic & Fibreboard • National & International Delivery & Collection • Variety of Packaging Designs and Types • Special / Hazardous Waste Treatment • UN Reconditioning & Leak Testing • Closed-Loop `Launder’ & Return • Final Disposal / Recycling Systems www.theipa.co.uk

  11. Treatment Options for Used Packaging Drum Disposal in the `Good Old Days’ - Circa 1970 www.theipa.co.uk

  12. Treatment Options for Used Packaging Current typical recovery operation 2010 www.theipa.co.uk

  13. Treatment Options for Used Packaging A professional reconditioning service will ensure each used industrial container (typically from 20 to 1200 litres) is inspected, cleaned and tested in an effort to gain the maximum re-use…..either returned to the supplier for refilling or for re-sale to the wider industry. Only the non re-useable containers (having been cleaned) will be crushed / shredded / granulated etc. in preparation for materials recycling or energy recovery. This inspection and cleaning of every container handled and the streaming for re-use or recycling means the Reconditioner is gaining the most environmentally and commercially efficient option for every used Drum & IBC collected. www.theipa.co.uk

  14. Treatment Options for Used Packaging • To gain the maximum benefit from the services offered by reconditioners, the following should be considered: • Used packaging should be as empty as practically possible for the container type • Pre-Rinsing is not usually required – and could reduce values • - for example steel drums could rust if not properly dried internally. • Product labels must always remain in place – to indicate true contents • Correct closures should be • securely in place www.theipa.co.uk

  15. UN and ADR Transport Regulations provide for various aspects of packaging and IBC re-use including;Reconditioning, Re-Use, Repair, Routine Maintenance and also Remanufacture www.theipa.co.uk

  16. Reusable Drums and IBCs manufactured for use with Dangerous Goods must be embossed with both the UN symbol & the tested standard to enable fillers to ensure safety in first use & repeated re-use with dangerous goods. Example of a typical embossed UN mark 1A1/X/300/07/GB/1027 www.theipa.co.uk

  17. The embossed markings show the tested standard of the packaging and (with reference to ADR) which classes of product it can contain Unless shown in the mark (eg; 1A1/X1.4/300) the specific gravity for liquids is 1.2 1= drum 07= year of manufacture A= steel GB= country of certification 1A1/X/300/07/GB/**** **** = manufacturer’s certificate number 1= non removable head 300= vapour pressure in kPa X= packing group I, II or III www.theipa.co.uk

  18. The UK Department for Transport operates a Reconditioner Scheme which regulates the industry, audits the companies registered and issues the UN Certificates and marks for drums reconditioned for dangerous goods use Note the same format for the UN manufacturers’ marking – but with the addition of “RL” which indicates; Reconditioned & Leak Tested The reconditioner’s certificate number may be replaced by the company name There is no similar scheme for IBCs in the UK However the IPA are developing a Code of Practice – to be issued Jan 2008 www.theipa.co.uk

  19. IBCs are also suitable for multiple re-use but not referred to in UN & ADR as “reconditioned” but as; Routine Maintenance(cleaned, dried & inspected) Repair(new part/s fitted) Remanufacture(different design parts with re-testing) • The modular design of the • typical rigid, composite IBC makes • them ideal for repeated repair & re-use • however beware !!.... • The replacement of any part that is not • as per the original tested specification • will cancel the UN certificate – meaning • it is no longer suitable for use with • Dangerous Goods. www.theipa.co.uk

  20. Also – any IBC that has been subject to Routine Maintenance or Repair must have durable markings to identify who, when and where the work was carried out In addition: for “Repair” (replacement of any worn / damaged parts) – that the IBC has been leak tested to the correct UN/ ADR standard The company carrying out IBC Repair work for Dangerous Goods / Haz Wastes must also maintain a record for each unit processed and leak tested www.theipa.co.uk

  21. BE CAREFUL…When re-using any packaging for dangerous goods / hazardous wastes which utilises plastic elements (such as all the Drum and IBC types below) – there is a 5 year maximum life limit ! This is why it is critical that the date of manufacture, repair or re-manufacture is indicated on the container. www.theipa.co.uk

  22. Consignment Issues – Dangerous Goods vsHaz Waste • The UN & ADR Transport Regulations includes exemptions • specific to the transport of Empty, Uncleaned Packaging. • This is (as always) a little complex – so seek the advice of a DGSA - but essentially it enables; • No requirement for the orange marker plates • No requirement for full ADR Consignment Notes – basic wording only • No requirement for external fire extinguishers • (though this is still recommended and a small one in the cab is required) • No requirement for full 5 year ADR certified drivers • (though awareness training is required) • Take care: Not Dangerous Goods – but still Hazardous Waste?.... • eg; Mineral Oils www.theipa.co.uk

  23. End of Life = End of Value ???.. Shredding Sticky mess ! Resin Contaminated IBCs Clean, Dry Material For Sale ! Wash & Dry Systems www.theipa.co.uk

  24. Local Opportunities Lost ?....... We are (slowly) beginning to understand the fact that materials can be reduced, re-used, recycled, recovered etc… Unfortunately we have a long way to go …… in Yorkshire alone we landfilled approx’ 90,000 tonnes of rigid plastics materials in 2007 At a (low) average of £150 / tonne in value that’s £13.5 million ! Enough to make even a hedge fund manager cry! www.theipa.co.uk

  25. Local Opportunities to be gained ?....... In West Yorkshire alone we have a wealth of specialists: • Waste Cleaning Equipment manufacturers: • eg; Rotajet Systems, Ossett • Waste Shredding & Compaction Equipment manufacturers: • eg; Meltog Machinery Co. Leeds • Specialised Plastics Recyclers / Reprocessors: • eg; Linpac Castleford, i-Plas Halifax, etc • Specialist Advice & Support: • Chamber of Commerce / Yorkshire Forward CO2 Sense etc. www.theipa.co.uk

  26. The future ?....... With increased awareness, cultural change and new technologies we can see real progress – but we must not allow ourselves to be left behind in the UK…. www.theipa.co.uk
