Why You Should Choose Renco Nets for Sustainability

As the UK’s most versatile manufacturers of tailor-made nets and netting solutions, we are committed to environmental sustainability. Working with plastic products such as polyethylene and polypropylene, we ensure compliance with relevant UK legislation. Care is taken to source and manufacture our wide range of netting products with minimal impact on the environment.

Read on to find out more about the environmental credentials of Renco Nets.

Sustainably Superior

Given the shocking news about the devastating impacts of plastic waste, you may be surprised to learn that polyethylene is a sound environmental choice. Used in the manufacture of everything from twisted netting to braided twine, polyethylene is more sustainable than conventional fabrics such as cotton and polyester.

Production of polyethylene-fiber requires a relatively small amount of energy. Although designed for strength and durability, polyethylene products are also suitable for recycling.


You might be surprised to find polypropylene and sustainability mentioned in the same sentence. However, with typical CO2 emissions of 1.95kg3.5kg per kg, polypropylene has less of a carbon footprint than that associated with other plastic varieties. As an example, three times the amount of emissions are generated in the production of polycarbonate.

Used in the manufacture of such products as knotless netting and splitfilm rope, polypropylene takes a relatively short amount of time to degrade. Recycling is also an option, with no toxic chemicals being released in the process.

Minimal Impact

Our commitment to sustainability extends to the sourcing of poly hemp ropes. As the “sober cousin” of marijuana, hemp contains a tiny fraction of the psychoactive components of the plant-based drug. Apart from being extremely strong and durable, poly hemp is also a sound environmental choice.

A relatively small amount of land is required for the cultivation of hemp. And no chemicals are required for separation from the cannabis plant. It’s little wonder that poly hemp ropes are such a popular choice among our eco-conscious customers.

Complete Commitment

Focused on minimising our carbon footprint, Renco Nets take a number of eco-friendly measures together with the choice of sustainable materials. Based in Immingham, we are able to ensure quick and efficient delivery to customers across Lincolnshire and the wider UK. We also offer the option of bulk buying, with associated benefits such as the reduced use of packaging, fuel consumption, and pollution.
