Preventing pellet loss into the environment

Spill of plastic granules (for example pellets) can occur at all stages along the plastics value chain, including production, handling, transportation, conversion and recycling. Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) is an international program designed to prevent the loss of these plastic granules.

The plastics industry is committed to provide solutions to prevent marine litter

The methodology included in this program has already helped to implement effective corrective actions in many companies in the plastics industry worldwide. By signing the OCS pledge, companies recognize the importance of preventing spill by implement measures to fulfil commitments of this program. Jackon Group, with all its entities, has signed this pledge.
