Fate of Non-organic Packaging Materials from De-packaging Operations – How Much is Recycled & Into What?

November 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

De-packaging is growing as a way of making the significant amount of waste from unused packaged food available for anaerobic digestion and composting. During the webinar, attendees heard from operators of de-packaging facilities. The webinar covered:

  • How do de-packaging operations work?
  • What are the non-organic materials generated by de-packagers?
  • What happens to the non-organic materials – what and how much is recycled and how much ends up as waste?
  • The impact of de-packaging on organic material and the potential for transfer of contaminants, including micro-plastics.
