Today, more than ever, pressure mounts on the ability to recycle. The plastics industry has recognized that it has to produce more sustainability if it is to meet the needs of its end users' changing consumption behavior and stricter global environmental legislation.

This presentation will focus on some of the challenges processors may encounter when introducing recycled materials into their process. We will also discuss considerations to make for ensuring optimal feeder performance of recyclates. Presentation is suited for engineers, purchasers and plant managers who are looking to justify and understand how their current equipment may be adapted to improve and maintain overall product quality, increase yields and minimize downtime to meet current and future processing needs.

Primary Topics:

  • How to handle various recycled plastics
  • Validating delivery of recycled content into plastic processing systems
  • Mechanical solutions to assist in your feeding process
