In spite of the coronavirus, ERDE collection points remain open – subject to hygiene requirements and with references to safety. Farmers' work is still being carried out even during the pandemic, therefore agricultural films are accruing without interruption during silaging. The environment and the climate are protected through the active participation of film manufacturers, farmers and collection points for returning and recovering used silo/stretch films and nets.
This is because each tonne of recycled silo and stretch film saves 1.28 tonnes of CO2 - harmful greenhouse gases. This fact comes from independent scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute. This means that in the year 2019 20,534 tonnes of collected closed loop recycled films saved 28,210 tonnes of CO2.
