The latest issue of our sister publication Sustainable Plastics is out now.
This time, next to the regular news and polymer pricing updates we provide in every issue, we’ve included an interview with Walter van het Hof from Trinseo, who talked about the meaning and importance of sustainability at his company. “Trinseo is committed to rethinking sustainability," he explained.
Sustainable Plastics has taken an inside look at Plasmac, a supplier of extruders for in-house recycling, which is currently a happy niche to be in, as evidenced by the phenomenal growth of the past years.
This issue’s feature article is all about additive manufacturing, but this time we’ve looked at a slightly different aspect: when does additive manufacturing make sense? Castor, a young Israeli company has come up with what just may well be the solution the industry has been waiting for: software that tells manufacturers whether additive manufacturing is the right technology for their product — or not. Call it a feasibility check. Or, as Castor’s Omer Blaier phrased it: “We’ve developed a decision support system for utilizing industrial 3D printing.”
Lastly, just a reminder that, although this year’s PRSE show has been postponed, Sustainable Plastics will be hosting a virtual event Dec. 9-11, and be announcing our 2020 winners of the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe.
