RE: Waste plastics as an energy source

Have they fully investigated the sources and ways to reduce/eliminate the waste?

Gee, there a lot of issues with burning plastic.  Can't they grind up the waste plastic & ship the chips back for re-molding?

Subject: Waste plastics as an energy source

I have a client the makes plastic syringes for the medical industry.  They currently generate a considerable amount of waste plastics from the process, about 20,000-24,000 lbs./week.  They have an extensive recycling system in place but were wondering if it was possible to incinerate on-site to generate energy for the facility due to the high BTU value.  We know that there are a lot of issues involved, but we were wondering if anyone knows of a company that is doing this.  Appreciate any insights that are out there.
