Sp Berner

“Aquí hay trabajo” programme visits the Berner recycling plant

There are a thousand excuses, but now that we’re in the middle of the climate summit, every one of us should ask ourselves what we’re doing to save our planet.

On the 28th of November, we hosted a visit from TVE’s La2 at our Berner recycling plant in our Aldaia facilities, one of the largest recycling plants in Europe

The report, which was broadcast on 9th December, explains how we work and the processes we carry out with plastic to give products a second life, through the voices of the people who make up Sp-Berner. 

Video report from “Aquí hay trabajo”.

First of all, África Toro, our colleague from HR, explained our extensive experience in plastics processing. Sp-Berner, which recycles around 20,000 tonnes of plastic per year, has more than 50 years of experience in the sector. 

Next up, Ismael Sánchez, our chemical process engineer, showed them around our recycling plant facilities. Ismael also explained the cleaning and shredding process we carry out with the recycled plastic at Sp-Berner, to make reusing it possible. 

In addition, our visitors heard about the recycling of thermal blankets currently used in the agricultural sector, which Sp-Berner uses to produce new products and so prevent them from being disposed of in landfills, as in the past.

In the report, Luis Mora, head of maintenance at the Berner recycling plant, also shows the machinery and facilities that we use to carry out all these processes for producing and reusing plastic.

The cameras of Televisión Española’s La2 also visited our research department. As our colleagues explained, we carry out around 50 trials a week to validate a product. This way, we ensure our products are high-quality, as well as being made from recycled material.

Finally, Vanessa Ruiz explained to our guests that she and our team of operators check the products created, so that each and every one of them leaves our factory in perfect condition and without any production faults.

This whole process is Pure Recycled Plastic, and we’re very proud to say that it’s a sustainable way of thinking and acting.

At Sp-Berner, we’re increasingly trying to stop making excuses when it comes to controlling the impact of our activities, products and services on the environment. Because, in line with the motto of the current climate summit, it’s “time for action”.
