The palé wooden, an ecological packaging

13 April 2012

In 2010, the manufacture of new palés wooden in accordance with the data facilitated by the INE, rose to more than 39 million units and near of 24 million palet-box and other platforms of load. The palé wooden is one of the most used packagings in the world because of his multiple advantages, in addition to his reduced cost, that facilitate at all times the process of storage and transport of the commodities.
Fedemco

According to data elaborated by Fedemco (Spanish Federation of the wooden Container), the one who represents to a veintena of manufacturers and reparadores of palés, informs from a survey to a sample of more than 300 companies envasadoras and distributors, the Spanish market, generated in 2010 more than 315 million movements of palés new and used. Of the total of movements, 49% would correspond to palés of systems for hire, that diminish with regard to the year 2009 (54%) and 51% to the rest (palés of an only use, European type, etc.)

Between the economic sectors that more palés of all type use stand out the one of ‘trade wholesale and intermediate' and ‘manufacture of other mineral products no metallic', that includes the manufacture of ceramic products, cement, plaster, cal, concrete, glass, etc., whereas the sector of the industry agroalimentaria continuous being the one who more palés for hire sues.

Excepting the case of the palés for hire, of the more than 161 million movements of another type of palés, roughly 66% also are reutilizados, well by the own user (51%) or by an agent recuperador (15%). Whereas 24% correspond to new and 10% remaining correspond to mattered, in commercial operations with the foreigner.

In 2010, the recuperadores of palés reintrodujeron in the market, near of 25 million units. 95% of this recovery realise it manufacturers and skilled agents in recovery of palés, and 5% remaining another type of waste managers. According to the recuperadores, of the total of the recovered 45% correspond to the European type, 16%, originally, of an only use and 39% to other types of palé.

His advantages

The main characteristic of the palé wooden is his perfect adaptation to the logistics of the sending. It treats of a resistant packaging (manufactured mainly with wood of pine) valid for a big rank of supported weights.

Exist models standardised for the routine operations and models realised to measure that adapt to the peculiarities of each sending. They can vary the dimensions of the palé (1.000 x 1.200, 800 x 1.200, 600 x 800, etc.), the number of tables, his thickness, the number of entrances (2 or 4) to facilitate the manipulation, etc.

The palé wooden is an ecological packaging, that helps to the user to reduce his footprint of carbon in his usual activity. The wood, that proceeds of forestrys managed of sustainable way, retains the CO2 absorbed by the tree during his growth. In accordance with the data supplied by FEFPEB (Federation Europeenne give Fabricants of Palettes et Emballages in Bois) in the web ‘Packaging from Nature' a palé wooden has stored roughly 27 kilos of carbon, converting to the wood in the only material widely used that has a footprint of negative carbon.

The process of manufacture is simple without need of big consumptions of power. Besides they are manufactured from trozas small and other parts of the tree that do not use in other industries, forming part of a highly efficient system in which they use all the parts of the tree. The palés wooden are re-usable, easily repairable and once finished his cycle of life can recycle by means of a simple procedure, no contaminante and economic, for the manufacture of boards, briquetas, etc. remaining the CO2 retained in the new product.

Phytosanitary ware hygiene

The palés destined to the non-EU trade will have to fulfil with the NIMF-15, phytosanitary ware rule of the FAO and be identified with the marks specified in the norm.

The mark, only applicable by a provider or a third authorised, certifies that the material of wooden packaging that carries it has been subjected to a treatment approved: thermal sensors treatment (HT), or equivalent processes. The thermal sensors treatment demands to keep a temperature of 56°C during 30 minutes in the centre of the wood treated.
