With export markets for certain recyclable commodities gone, North American recyclers are challenged to find new markets at home. Domestic infrastructure for plastics, and polypropylene (PP) in particular, is not robust enough or optimized to make up demand.
Join us in a morning Roundtable on March 20 at NERC’s Spring ’19 Conference —Building Better Recycling Markets—to help forge a path to new market opportunities for PP in the Northeast. The Roundtable goal is to make transfer station and MRF operations more sustainable, keep post-consumer PP in recycling programs, and to connect operators with markets in an economically viable way.
The Roundtable is hosted by the Closed Loop Partners and NERC, and is sponsored by .
Conference Dates & Location: March 20 - 21 in Wilmington, Delaware.
