This week's issue of Plastics News is now live and this week we're featuring our 2022 Mold Makers ranking. Check out the rankings here and hear more from our editorial researcher Hollee Keller on what made up the rankings this year. Amid steady growth for mold makers, Decatur Mold Tool and Engineering invested $12 million in a 14,320-sq-ft expansion and lights out technology.
Elsewhere we reported on the rising tides of plastics litigation, a phaseout of plastic produce bags and a study from Australia's Minderoo Foundation that found 'colossal' legal risk from plastics pollution. Another study finds value in chemical recycling advancements.
