Vecoplan LLC just wrapped up at the 13th Annual CARE Conference in New Orleans, LA yesterday. The CARE Conference was an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues in the carpet recycling industry, and to learn more about how CARE and its membership are keeping carpet out of the landfill and finding marketable uses for the recycled textile. We represented at the Conference with our booth where we showcased our unique and efficient fiber recycling systems and shredders as well as being a 2015 corporate sponsor.
This years event offered Vecoplan LLC a chance to meet one-on-one with users and network in the exhibition hall. Along with the exhibiting hours this years CARE Conference featured breakout sessions and a keynote giving attendees the 2015 CARE Update, New Technology Updates, Sustainability Announcements and Advanced Recycling informational sessions. We enjoyed attending this year’s event and meeting all the wonderful attendees that dropped by our booth.
The mission of CARE is to advance market-based solutions that increase landfill diversion and recycling of post-consumer carpet, encourage design for recyclability and meet meaningful goals as approved by the CARE Board of Directors.
Vecoplan provides shredders and systems for a variety of textile processing applications. These include secure destruction, recycling and process engineered fuel (PEF) – when a significant fraction volume of the waste stream being processed as an alternative fuel source is composed of textiles.
