#Mercurio: our commitment with the environment and rubber waste

Through a joint initiative between the areas of Procurement and Quality & Environmental Management, we were able to identify sustainable solutions in the market for disposing our rubber scraps. Sustainability is a challenge in the routine of large companies, so Mercurio Conveyor Belt, attentive to this need, has adopted a new disposal system for its rubber scraps. “This is an important step forward in our environmental policy because rubber has no set time to degrade,” explains Igor Durigon, Mercurio Conveyor Belt’s Business Controller.

A joint initiative between the areas of Procurement and Quality & Environmental Management has identified sustainable solutions for disposal in the market. “We have found a specialized partner and are working with him to make sure that the machinery is capable of grinding the rubber and separating the raw materials,” explains Alessandro Cardoso, Mercurio Conveyor Belt’s Procurement Manager.

“In addition to environmental gains, we reduced our disposal and transportation costs by 30% at our headquarters and by 40% at our Distribution Center”, says Luciene Scarpin, Mercurio Conveyor Belt’s Quality & Environment Management Supervisor​.​

Mercurio Conveyor Belt manages all waste treatment and disposal tasks done by its partners. This is the company’s commitment to a more sustainable industrial process.​
