Solutions for Recyclers
HPRC aims to assist recyclers, including haulers, material recovery facilities, and reprocessors, in better understanding the value of healthcare plastics. Through work focused on material handling training and optimal reuse applications, HPRC helps recyclers minimize risk and maximize market value.
With more tools in the works, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact us to learn more or if you are interested in participating.
This complete overview of healthcare plastics recycling is specifically geared toward recyclers, laying out common materials, strategies for working with hospitals, processing techniques, and potential end markets.
HPRC and Penn State completed preliminary testing to determine best practices for film recycling, blending, and sample preparation, mapping the impact of the hospital polymer film recycling stream composition on the physical properties of reprocessed polymer material.
