Joe Shamatta

Director, Supply & Trading, Envision Plastics

I started my career in plastics recycling in 2011 with the founding of my company, 3R Recycling. 3R was a post-industrial plastics processor in the Boston, MA-area that offered sustainability and recycling services to packaging manufacturers. Also, in 2018 I founded the first recycling company dedicated to the 3D printing industry, Replay 3D. Replay 3D offered a closed-loop recycling program that collected, recycled, and reprocessed PLA into 3D printing filament for retail and commercial use.

3R Recycling was sold in June of 2020 and I joined Envision Plastics as the Director of Supply & Trading  three months later. I am responsible for the day-to-day supply of Envision’s two processing plants as well as the strategic analysis and market outlook for raw material purchases.
