The upcycled half plastic pallet

Upcycling is the process of transforming waste materials into new products of higher value

CHEP has turned a growing waste problem into a customer solution through the 100% post-consumer waste recycled plastic pallet. The pallet is manufactured using mixed plastic that is expensive to segregate.

Typically, this plastic would be either burnt for energy generation or down-cycled into lower grade products that lack strong demand from end markets. The CHEP pallet design incorporates elements of biomimicry in its honeycomb surface for strength and traction and is also 100% recyclable.

The product will serve customers that require the highest hygiene standards and allow efficient in-store replenishment using standard pallet equipment.
