In-Plant Recycling and Reclaim of Extruded/Molded Plastic Scrap for Improved Sustainability-SPE Carolinas Section

Producers of extruded/molded products have three main options for dealing with their internal scrap:
They can reuse it, sell it, or dispose of it.

The goals of this presentation are as follows:

  • To provide information for processing 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 introduction of scrap material back into the primary production lines.

We will review the logistics, economics, and processing technologies typically used, with a 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.

Presented by Dana Darley, Business Development and Complex Applications Manager for the Plastics Division at Vecoplan LLC, a leading manufacturer of size reduction, separation, and recycling systems.
