Recognized for proprietary AERO screening technology that maximizes PVC recovery rates and reduces scrap sent to landfills
Lisbon, Ohio, January 18, 2023 – The Vinyl Sustainability Council (VSC), a voluntary member-based organization advancing sustainability in the vinyl industry, presented its annual Recycling Award to JP Industrial Products (JPI), a privately-held plastic recycling company specializing in PVC reprocessing.
The VSC’s Recycling Award honors US-based recyclers and manufacturers finding new solutions and markets for PVC end-of-life or scrap materials, increasing the use of recycled vinyl content in their products, and partnering with companies in take-back programs.
The award recognizes JP Industrial for its proprietary AERO Screening Technology, which captures and reuses PVC material traditionally lost in the recycling process. The technology converts byproducts into a high-grade PVC fraction for reuse into various applications – particularly in the building products sector.
To date, JPIs AERO technology has prevented more than 100 million pounds of PVC scrap from ending up in landfills.
As a member of the Vinyl Sustainability Council, JP Industrial joins more than 50 organizations in tracking, reporting, and advancing sustainable performance in the vinyl industry, focusing their efforts on resource efficiency, health and safety, and emissions.
“There is a portion of waste created in the recycling process, and limited technology available to capture that waste efficiently,” said Jamin Pastore, CEO of JP Industrial. “With supportive vision from forward-thinking organizations like the VSC, companies like ours will collectively continue to drive progress in sustainable practices for the customers and regions we serve.”
The VSC’s Recycling Award is a significant achievement for JP Industrial, underscoring the company’s long-term commitment to environmental responsibility. By promoting sustainable practices, reducing its carbon footprint, and developing innovative recycling technologies, JP Industrial continues to set the standard for the vinyl industry.
