Automotive Recycling Initiatives and Infrastructure Development for Flexible Plastics - A Case Study 1999-01-0669

The infrastructure that exists between automotive companies and their Tier 1 suppliers for instrument panel trim allows recycling which maintains polymer chemistry value, accomplishes conservation of resources and reduces use of limited and costly landfill resources. This recycling case study reviews the O'Sullivan Corporation program and offers an alternative model to consider in developing post-consumer recycling alternatives.
