USA – The EcoStrate recycling company of Texas, USA is the winner of the 2017 ISRI Design for Recycling Award. The award was presented last week during the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries’€™ Convention & Expo in New Orleans.

EcoStrate uses a new technology to combine non-recyclable materials into high value products such as traffic signs, indoor signs, flooring, and other surface materials from polymer content derived from used electronics, textiles and packaging scrap.

‘The revolutionary process has the potential to open new markets not just for plastics recyclers, but for those who handle electronics, textiles, and other commodities’, comments ISRI’s president Robin Wiener.

‘We have worked hard to create products and solutions that use the more challenging polymer waste streams’, says EcoStrate’s ceo Ron Sherga. EcoStrate products help reduce the use of harmful chemicals and virgin resources, he claims. ‘Our material sources and product solutions have a global impact in developing markets as well as in the USA.’
