Driving the Circular Economy

At NPE2024, you can immerse yourself in a world of sustainable plastic manufacturing and witness our commitment to environmental stewardship. It is our goal to achieve a goal of repurposing 100% of the plastic from the show — reducing impacts on natural resources, minimizing waste generation and shifting toward renewable energy options. From engaging sustainability workshops to our all-new film recycling program and technology aiding the circular economy, NPE® will shape a greener future for the plastics industry.

Recycling by the Numbers

Through the NPE Recycling Program, we work hard to ensure none of the plastic scrap generated during NPE2024 is disposed of as waste. That’s why we’re proud to offer onsite programs and demonstrations that showcase the positive effects recycling has on the plastics industry.
