Recycling Demonstration



NPE2018 is committed to promoting sustainability and recycling in plastics manufacturing. And that includes the on the show floor as well. Partnering with Commercial Plastics Recycling (CPR) – a post-industrial and post-commercial recycler of plastic materials– NPE2018 will recover more than 380,000-lb of material produced during the show and shredded on-site using WEIMA’s WLK 15 single-shaft shredder and sent to CPR for recycling.
Attendees will experience this all for themselves with CPR’s Recycling Demonstration. This demonstration is an opportunity for education-in-action displaying real-world applications of lessons learned at the 2018 Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit, co-located with NPE2018. The summit aims to address manufacturers’ challenges with recycling and sustainable practices and invites the entire supply chain to "refocus" on product design, technology and manufacturing with an eye toward recycled content.
Attend NPE2018 and Re|focus to further your understanding of sustainability in plastics manufacturing and see how you can incorporate greener processes in your operation.
