Re: Foam scrap reuse/recycle



You might want to list it on the www.renewtx.org web site.

The Resource Exchange Network for Eliminating Waste (RENEW) is a materials-exchange network to promote the reuse or recycling of industrial wastes. The network is a marketing channel for industries, businesses, and governmental units who wish to sell surplus materials, by-products, and wastes to those who will reclaim or reuse them.

I have a client that makes cushions for airplane seats.  They fashion the foam according to the specifications/design and send off to their customer.  They have worked very hard to cut the foam with a minimal amount of waste, however a significant amount is generated on a monthly basis.  Does anyone have any ideas where this waste can be marketed for re-use or recycle rather than the current practice of disposal?  The foam is:

 

1.        Closed cell foam – density is 2.2-2.3 (amount not known)

2.       Open cell foam – density of 2.4-3.2 (18,000 lbs. per month)

 

All foam is aircraft quality.  It has fire prevention additives, etc.   The waste is in strips, pieces, odd shapes.   Appreciate any ideas that you can give us. 

 

Thanks,
Judy Wlodarczyk
