Waste360: Sustana Works to Address Wasted Packaging Problems
The first of Sustana Fiber’s ‘Conversations with Green Champions’ is with Scott Byrne, Director of Government Affairs for the Carton Council, which has helped to expand food and beverage carton recycling to more than 72 million American homes.
Conversations around recycling and the perils of landfills at capacity are now mainstream for both consumers and businesses. But it’s not all negative – in fact, a lot of productive conversations are happening around opportunities in this space.
Fabian de Armas, CEO and Chairman of Sustana Group, shares his insights on the company’s strategy and sustainability highlights.
One small change made by Production Superintendent Phil Nysse at Sustana Fiber’s Fox River facility in De Pere, Wisconsin managed to reduce fresh water consumption at the plant by just under eight per cent per ton of fiber recycled, since 2016 when the change was made.
