Plastic Pellets

Support for pellet handling operations to prevent plastic pellet loss to the environment

Plastic pellets, flakes and powders are the raw material used to make a vast range of products – including packaging, toys, medical devices, pipes and consumer goods.

But due to poor handling, transportation and management practices they can be spilt and lost to the environment … right across the supply chain.

PAS 510:2021 is the worlds first plastic pellet loss prevention standard.  It sets out the requirements for the handling and management of pellets, flakes and powders throughout the supply chain – covering organisational responsibilities, leadership and commitment, training, risk assessment and operational controls.

It builds on the work (and success) of Operation Clean Sweep®, an international initiative from the plastics industry to reduce plastic pellet loss to the environment.  Operation Clean Sweep requires companies to make a commitment to implement systems and good practice to prevent loss to the marine environment.

PAS 510 is a standardised approach to risk management and containment of plastic pellets and aims to help companies achieve and maintain zero loss across their pellet handling operations.

How we can help

PS Partnerships were technical authors of this new innovative standard … so we have a deep understanding of its aims, objectives and clauses.  And with decades of experience of working within the plastics industry we have the technical and manufacturing backgrounds to understand how and where pellet loss occurs.  We can support you with:

  • Integrating the requirements of the standard into your current pellet handling practices
  • Independent auditing of your pellet handling operations against the requirements of the standard
  • Gap analysis to see how you currently perform
  • Action plans for integrating PAS 510 into your organisation
  • Training, awareness and developing the competencies of your employees and sub-contractors
