Geo-Tech Polymers rewarded for recycling innovation

United States – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) has selected US-based Geo-Tech Polymers as the winner of its 2014 Innovation in Plastics Recycling Award.

‘This year’s award recipients are helping overcome some of the hurdles needed to take plastics recycling to new levels,’ says ACC’s Steve Russell. ‘Their innovations will help expand the ongoing growth in plastics recycling and make more recycled plastics available to manufacturers.’

Geo-Tech, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wastren Advantage, has developed a patented process for removing coatings such as ink, chrome, paint, films and labels from discarded plastics prior to reprocessing. Such coatings can impact the value or utility of recycled plastics if not removed. The process expands the number of applications available for recycled plastics, says Geo-Tech president Ron Whaley.
