Sustainability is part of our DNA
Ravago, parent company of Amco Polymers, was founded in 1961 with the goal of recycling production waste from plastics producing petrochemical companies. The Ravago Group is one of the earliest members and strategic advisor to the Healthcare Plastics Recycling Council (HPRC), a private, technical consortium of industry peers across healthcare, recycling and waste management industries to improve the recyclability of plastic products and packaging within healthcare. HPRC members work collaboratively, harnessing individual strengths into collective knowledge to be a change agent for sustainable healthcare.
HPRC was founded in 2010 and is composed of globally recognized members who engage in pioneering projects designed to help boost plastics recycling efforts in clinical settings of hospitals. Committed to continuous dialogue, HPRC explores ways to enhance the economics, efficiency, and ultimately the quality and quantity of healthcare plastics collected for recycling.
