Why Green is the Way to Go

Sustainable Green

A company that makes industrial shipping cases for use in electronics, aerospace, and the military was in need of improving their foam recyclability efforts drastically. The company was looking to recycle all of the foam scrap it generated in a cost-effective way. With the help of different pieces of equipment to create precision inserts from the planks of foam at hand, the company was looking to take all foam scraps and recycle them into better solutions.

Recycling foam planks has been an issue for quite some time. Shipping scrap generally costs more than the actual value of the load. Overall, the company at hand was preventing 40,000 pallet loads of used foam from entering landfills. This cost-effective solution to compacting proved to be the solution worth having for their green corporate initiatives.
