Designing Products & Packaging for Recovery
Successful recovery of materials begins with proper product and packaging design. End-of-use considerations should be included during the design process along with several other factors, such as chemical composition, rigidity, shape and size. During this session, we learn what factors determine recyclability and review sources to aid in product design.

10:07 AM – 10:57 AM
Accelerating the Growth of Domestic Markets
We need to accelerate the growth of domestic end markets for recycled-content manufacturing. At the same time, supply chains are facing disruption because of the lack of feedstock. This session highlights examples of feedstock shortages, private business end-market development and state-sponsored end-market development.

10:57 AM – 11:50 AM
RCF Pulp/Mixed Paper Markets

This unique session will provide deep insights on the duel subjects of the growing capacity for recovered fiber (RCF) pulp production as well as mixed paper markets. RCF Pulp production is slated to increase dramatically in N. America. Bill Moore will share where the projects stand and look at their impact on the industry. Mixed paper continues to be both a challenge and opportunity.
