Sustainability Highlighted at 2024 NPE Show

CPMA Executive Director David Wawer attended the NPE2024, also known as The Plastics Show, from May 6-10, 2024 in Orlando, Florida. This year’s show featured hundreds of companies with exhibits featuring sustainability practices across the plastics industry value chain.

Industry showcases described comprehensive efforts by industry to increase recycling rates by the public and to increase consumer awareness about the value of recycling. One of the challenges discussed during presentations is the need to modernize recycling facilities across the nation with Best Available Technologies, including AI and Robotics.

CPMA is partnering with the Vinyl Sustainability Council, one of this year’s exhibitors, to promote sustainability and innovation practices across the color industry value chain and educate brands about sustainable color science applications across the vinyl and plastics spectrums. Coming up in June, CPMA is looking forward to engaging with national industry leaders at the annual trade association Vinyl Sustainability Council meeting in Washington, DC.
