Novamont North America Sponsors Tour of a Commercial Composter (SET) at Re|Focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit 2023
The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) are holding their annual Re|Focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit this year on May 1st - 3rd in Minneapolis, MN.
To help support the summit, Novamont North America are sponsoring the Specialized Environmental Technologies, Inc. (SET) Tour on Wednesday May 3rd, 1.15pm - 4pm CDT. SET is a commercial composter that accepts BPI-certified compostable bioplastics along with food scraps and yard waste. Tour participants will see first-hand how these waste feedstocks are turned into environmentally beneficial compost. They will get an up-close look at the equipment in operation and a detailed explanation of the commercial composting process from start to finish.
Bringing together those who make and use plastic, Re|Focus creates a space for approximately 200 attendees to convene around six key themes: innovative materials, advanced recycling, mechanical recycling, environmental conservation, resource efficiency, and brand commitments.
The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) is the preeminent trade association representing the entire plastics industry value chain and over a million U.S. workers.
