Recognized for proprietary screening technology that captures and reuses PVC material traditionally lost in the recycling process
LISBON, OH, Apr 1, 2022 – JP Industrial Products (JPI), a privately-held plastic recycling company specializing in PVC reprocessing, received the 2022 Sustainable Innovation Award in the End of Life category from the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS). The Ohio-based company won for its proprietary AERO (Aspiration-Elutriation-Reduction-Optimization) Screening Technology, which converts PVC waste into a high-grade powder that can be used in various applications – particularly in the building products sector.
Presented annually by PLASTICS, the Re|focus Sustainability Innovation Awards recognize companies driving environmental advances for product design, material sustainability, and end-of-life recovery of plastics. The End-of-Life Award honors innovations that facilitate the recycling or composting of plastic or bioplastic materials, enabling the industry to more efficiently reprocess these materials and increase the volume of material suitable to continue into a second, third, or fourth life.
Processing hundreds of millions of pounds of vinyl window scrap annually, JPI saw gaps in available technology to capture the abundance of waste created in the recycling process. Aimed at maximizing PVC recovery rates and limiting the volume sent to landfills, JPI is committed to continuously designing and implementing new processing equipment and strategies that capture this material in a reusable form.
