Recycling Agricultural Plastics: Logistic & Marketing Challenges, and Successes
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation is a forward-looking as well as retrospective update on the status of recycling markets for agricultural plastics. From experience we have learned much about characteristics of likely markets for these plastics (which tend to be dirtier, often dark- or multi-colored, made with additives and a mix of resins, as well as expensive to collect), but changes in equipment, technologies and perceptions are turning some of the truisms of the past upside down.
