A free white paper from Leigh Fibers, Spartanburg, S.C., explains how a manufacturer can turn scrap into useful raw materials, benefitting both the company’s bottom line and the environment. “Waste Should Not Be Wasted—The Top 10 Ways To Make It Work For You” looks at waste from several different perspectives, among them material reclamation, disposal costs, new product development, marketing and liability issues. “How to” tips are included.
When manufacturers treat their processing waste as trash, it adds to the 250 million tons of U.S. solid waste generated annually, says George Martin, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Leigh Fibers, and author of the white paper. Also, those companies miss opportunities to improve their productivity and profitability. “One person’s waste is another person’s raw material,” says Martin.
