A planned South Carolina processing facility will shred, wash and pelletize a variety of scrap plastics with an emphasis on post-industrial material, a company leader has confirmed to Plastics Recycling Update.
Two of the largest recycling events in the United States and Europe have formed a strategic alliance. The move brings together the U.S.-based Plastics Recycling Conference and the Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE) as the recycling of plastics takes on increasing global importance.
Public and private entities regularly sample waste streams to glean data on the plastics that could be captured for recycling. Now, guidelines have been developed to standardize the process so results can be compared.
