Members of the RES Polyflow team celebrated America Recycles Day 2017 with colleagues and regional stakeholders in Ashley Indiana at a luncheon that promoted energy recovery via plastics-to-fuel for properly managing low value, difficult to recycle plastic found in the waste stream. Hosted by the Northeast Indiana Solid Waste Management District, company personnel facilitated a discussion on the different types of plastic that is problematic to most recycling efforts, including boat and RV wrap, farm plastic and complex post-industrial streams. A demonstration of the company’s mobile assessment tool RUFUSTM (Remote Universal Feedstock Utilization System) was also offered to attendees. The RUFUSTM system gives RES Polyflow the ability to rapidly pre-qualify material streams at the source to ensure quality is maintained for the raw material that is secured for the company’s proprietary plastics-to-fuel conversion process. A the company prepares to break ground on a commercial plastics-to-fuel facility in the town of Ashley, IN the support offered by local community leaders and business owners during the event was appreciated.
