The Future of Fiber: Emerging Issues & Trends
September 27, 2013
At our last WRED event of the summer, guests heard from experts about the future of paper and corrugate recycling, how Starbucks sees the cup recycling landscape nationally, and what the impact and outcome of China’s Green Fence Initiative might mean for the future of fibers and other recyclables.
Attendees learned from a panel of recycling commodities experts from local MRFs and gained insights to their challenges with processing and where opportunities exist, and then toured SP Recycling, a regional MRF that is integrated with a paper mill.
