Freudenberg Announces Zero-Waste Goal
SCA’s zero-waste-to-landfill recycling program consists of segregating manufacturing, office, distribution and maintenance waste into three basic categories: combined recyclable materials, compostable materials and engineered fuel.
In February, candy company Hershey announced that three of its manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania have achieved zero-waste-to-landfill status by eliminating waste, recycling and converting waste to energy. Two of the facilities are in Hershey, Pa., and the third is in Hazleton, Pa. The plants recycle approximately 90 percent of the waste generated from operations, and the remainder is converted to energy at nearby waste-to-energy incinerators.
