Product Production Procedure
As an ISO14001, ISO 50001 and OHSAS18001-certified enterprise, MitraStar holds annual meetings for internal auditing and assessment for effective environmental, safety and hygiene management that live up to ISO Standards. The company also brings forward improvement plans for implementation and further assessments.
Moreover, MitraStar has also obtained the DNV IECQ QC080000 Certification for hazardous material management to ensure all its products satisfy customer requests and local regulations on hazardous or restricted material. MitraStar always applies higher standards than the industry requires on its green products in terms of environmental care, safety and health.
MitraStar uses less material for packaging and utilizes reused and recycled materials as much as possible.
As long as the packaging is sufficient for protecting the contained product, using less material shrinks the box to an optimum size and thus reduces costs associated with manufacturing, transportation and even carbon emissions. For instance:
- the thickness of a PE bag has been reduced from 0.1mm to 0.07mm.
- the integration of inner and outer box slashes 32.9% off the original volume.
Reuse & Recycle
The non-toxic, RoHS-compliant material chosen to make packaging can be recycled and is biodegradable:
- cartons and boxes consist of 80% to 90% recycled paper.
- most product containers use 100% recycled paper.
The way MitraStar uses pallets to load cartons is another surprisingly effective way to save energy. The standardized packaging and improved loading methods not only allows a pallet to contain more products, but also reduces the effort and energy involved in loading and shipping.
