The international Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam has embraced sustainability. In 2030 they aim to be a “zero-waste” airport. This means that waste must be recycled or fully bio-degradable. About 20,000 PET bottles are discarded at Schiphol every day! Hago Airport Services, responsible for cleaning services at Schiphol, is faced with this waste daily. Therefore, Hago took up this challenge to turn waste into new products. The company has developed a special 3Dprinting pole which is accessible for all travellers. They can dispose their PET bottles here and win 3Dprinted Boeing 737 plane. Based on InnoCircle PET filament.
In addition, Hago stimulates to set in employees which are temporarily not able to perform cleaning services. These employees were educated in 3Dprinting waste into new products. In this way PET waste was printed into 1800 NS badge holders. An example that Hago’s sustainable and social commitments go together perfectly.
