Shrinkwrap is a Low density polyethylene film (LdPE) and is made up of a neutral element; it is an inert material. Its manufacture, utilization, recycling and destruction do not give off any polluting elements. It is 100 % recyclable at very low cost. In the case of incineration, the gasses released (CO2 and H2O) already exist in nature and are not harmful to the environment. Its heating capability is high (one ton of PE = one T.O.E.) and it can be envisaged as a substitute source of energy. Its manufacture and recycling, compared to that of cardboard, are less costly in terms of energy and environment.
