Striving for a Greener Tomorrow

Mettler-Toledo is committed to doing business in an environmentally responsible manner that minimises adverse impacts on the environment. As a Mettler-Toledo company, Anachem strives to reduce consumption of important materials and reduce emissions.

We encourage the conservation of natural resources and the use of hazardous materials wherever possible and engage in activities that reuse and recycle.

TerraRack™ is a revolutionary concept in tip racks and just one of the ways we are working to reduce our carbon footprint. They are as sturdy as conventional racks, yet made with less than half the plastic and are 100% recyclable.

With substantially less materials required to create TerraRacks, compared to other racks, there is a big improvement in our carbon footprint and environmental impact.

Weighing less than half the weight of conventional injection-moulded tip racks, transport costs are significantly reduced. In addition, they are also extremely compressible and occupy less space in a waste or storage container.

We also provide space-saving rack refill options to enhance your workflow and minimise plastic waste in the form of our Green-Pak™ and Green-Pak SpaceSaver™ products. Our Green-Paks are fully recyclable individually sealed refills and are a great option for filter tip users. Our Green- Pak SpaceSaver allows you to refill a rack in seconds whilst producing 85% less waste than conventional racks.

If you use just ten racks of tips a week, you could save over 20kg of plastic waste a year by switching to Rainin tip products.

Whilst we're extremely proud of the eco-friendly products that we offer, we're determined not to stop there. We are constantly reviewing and improving our processes as we strive to reduce waste as well as make doing business with us as easy as possible for our customers.
