In-Plant Recycling and Reclaim of Plastic Scrap for Improved Sustainability—SPE Carolinas Section 

When: Tuesday, January 17, 2023 11:00 AM EST - 12:00 PM EST

Where: The Polymers Center of Excellence, Inc., 8900 Research Dr., Charlotte, NC 28262 or via Zoom


Producers of extruded/molded products have three main options when dealing with their own internal scrap 1) reuse it, 2) sell it, or 3) dispose of it. For all three, some type of re-processing is usually beneficial. In this course we will review the logistics, economics, and processing technologies typically used for extruded/molded products, with the main focus on the in-house recovery of scrap that is then fed back into the raw material stream—an important first step in your plant's sustainability journey. Join us as we listen to Dana Darley, Business Development Manager at Vecoplan LLC, discuss the process by which we recover our waste to reduce our environmental impact and improve the sustainability of our raw materials.

The goals of the program are to provide the information required to process scrap material for efficient disposal, transport, or re-sale, to evaluate the economic justifications for bringing scrap reprocessing capabilities in-house, and to review the processing technologies required for the introduction of scrap material back into the primary production lines.
