Lakeland Polymers Receives 2021 VSC Recycling Award

Vinyl Sustainability Council

December 27, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), a self-funded business council advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry, presented the 2021 Recycling Award at its annual meeting to Lakeland Polymers, of Boonton, New Jersey, for their Flex-Tech Gas Hose Recycling Program. “Lakeland’s innovative reprocessing strategy allows them to turn scrap from two different types of plastic into a reusable feedstock for alternative applications,” said Jay Thomas, executive director of the Vinyl Sustainability Council. “This type of product innovation keeps PVC out of the landfill.” The Vinyl Sustainability Council’s Recycling Award recognizes the efforts of recyclers and product manufacturers with operations in North America that find new solutions and or markets for PVC end-of-life or scrap materials, increase use of recycled vinyl content in their products, and/or engage in partnerships with companies in take-back programs. Lakeland Polymers Flex-Tech Gas Hose Recycling Program Lakeland Polymers, a plastic recycling company, takes pride in addressing and solving challenges for their customers. In February 2021, Lakeland Polymers partnered with Flex-Tech Hose of San Marcos, TX to find a solution for a PVC and copolyester waste issue. Lakeland was able to develop a custom recycling process which allowed the incompatible materials in the scrap to be processed into a reusable form. “Our experience in recycling PVC scrap materials gives us the ability to develop solutions to reclaim hard to recycle items. This project was another step for us to help minimize waste and further our sustainability efforts for our customers and suppliers.” said David Maute, Co-Owner of Lakeland Polymers. “Thank you to the VSC for recognizing our work on this successful venture, and for granting us this award.” Lakeland processes over 45,000 pounds a month of PVC scrap material from Flex-Tech in this program. So far, the partnership has diverted over 325,000 pounds of PVC from landfills extending the life and sustainable use of vinyl. About the Vinyl Sustainability Council The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), founded in 2016 in partnership with the Vinyl Institute, is a council created to advance the vinyl industry’s efforts in addressing sustainability. The VSC is a collaborative platform for companies, organizations, and other industry stakeholders to come together to create a sustainable development path for the industry.

Behind the Wheel: the IVECO Solidarity Cargo Makes up for Lost Time

CNH Industrial

The IVECO Solidarity cargo initiative, now in its sixth year, helped the population of a small town in Brazil recapture missed opportunities caused by the ongoing global pandemic. Watch this feel good holiday episode from CNH Industrial’s Behind the Wheel series at: cnhindustrial.com/IvecoSolidarityCargo The global pandemic has left in its wake a trail of broken dreams, missed opportunities and lives put on hold. Thankfully, though, stories of hope and happiness are beginning to emerge. The town of Cantanhede in the state of Maranhão, northeast Brazil, is one such story and was chosen by IVECO, the commercial vehicles brand of CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI), for its Solidarity Cargo 2021 edition. The project supports culture, education, and health initiatives that have suffered from the impacts of the pandemic and the video highlights how the Solidarity Cargo has been able to help. We meet Maria, 70, overjoyed at having received new sewing machines donated by the Solidarity Cargo allowing her to prepare the costumes for the local Tambor de Crioula dance festival. Neide, who runs a community project explains how the donation from IVECO of 300 Christmas toys for children will be the highlight at the revived monthly meeting of the villagers at their community centre. And there is an emotional interview with Gilcineia, a teacher at the Fimina dos Santos Barros Municipal School who describes how the Solidarity Cargo has donated computers and science equipment to her pupils. The Solidarity Cargo Project was started in Brazil in 2015 and brings help to those living in situations of social vulnerability in states such as Bahia, Minas Gerais, and Pará. Towns and cities in these areas were selected due to their low Human Development Index (HDI). The tool, developed by the United Nations, measures levels of social and economic development. CNH Industrial and IVECO are proud to support these local communities with the Solidarity Cargo delivering hope and happiness at this special time of year.

Advancing Energy Transition? Count Your Assets Too!

WSP

By Nilmino Roberts Today, as the vision of a carbon-free future is becoming more common, each sector is accelerating the energy transition through various strategies. These include deploying new technologies, investing in new infrastructure, revising policies, switching to renewable energy, converting less energy efficient plants to more efficient ones, electrifying transportation, and more. However, energy transition is not just about phasing out carbon-emitting energy sources and switching to renewable energy or greener fuel sources. Understanding the full life cycle of assets should be an integral part of this approach. As shown in the figure below, a holistic view of asset management and energy transition is required throughout the life cycle of an asset, from identifying the need for an asset to its operation and disposal phases.  It is therefore essential to consider energy transition through the asset management lens. The need for a power plant should trigger the need to think “green” and more environmentally sustainable energy solution, which will lead to rethink the asset design. A transit agency that commits to using zero-emission vehicles will need to consider how it will operationally be equipped to manage the new changes. Some of the considerations will be performing asset modifications, procurement of new inventory, training staff, safety considerations, new policies and guidelines throughout the implementation and life cycle of assets under consideration. It is no longer just about focusing on the technical aspects of the transition, it’s much more than that!  The introduction of new asset classes - for example, in the case of electric vehicles, charging stations - would introduce new responsibilities.  Effective management of these assets require attention in terms of finances and human resources. The challenges arising from this new paradigm shift are causing organizations to rethink the pace of change and influence their implementation decisions. Hence, change management becomes even more critical during this transformation.  In the process of phasing out assets as part of the transition, many assets carry the risk of being abandoned. 1  These may include fossil fuel power plants (to be closed), thermal generators, and even buildings.  The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) estimates that this risk may lead to the abandonment of energy infrastructure assets worth over USD 11 trillion. 2 People currently using these assets are also affected when they are abandoned. Upstream fossil fuel production and manufacturing are two sectors that are highly likely to be affected in this regard. Planning the asset disposal phase becomes essential to avoid massive job reductions and unemployment caused by abandoned assets, salvaging value out of abandoned assets and the responsible decommissioning of assets that are no longer needed, including repurposing for other uses. To make  the most of the energy transition, organizations need to understand the full life cycle of an asset and be able to map the driving forces involved and how they affect their operations and the wider communities they serve.  WSP understands this shift and responsibility and strive to guide clients to not only make informed decisions on the technical aspects of the energy transition, but also to help promote a viable and sustainable path forward.  "When it comes to energy transition, we are seeing increasing awareness and support from regulators, financiers, board members and end users of energy. However, much of the conversation is centered around the technology and the “what”, I believe its time these conversations need to include an end-to-end view of the “how”, this is where an approach supported by good Asset Management practices will enable meaningful longer-term outcomes for everybody!" Nilmino Roberts Principal Consultant Asset Management The International Energy Agency defines stranded assets as “those investments which have already been made but which, at some time prior to the end of their economic life (as assumed at the investment decision point), are no longer able to earn an economic return as a result of changes in the market and regulatory environment brought about by climate policy” (IEA, 2013).  1  Definition of stranded assets (while there are many definitions available) 2 IRENA – Global Energy Transformation  View additional multimedia and more ESG storytelling from WSP on 3blmedia.com
