MacDermid Partners With Sustainable Solutionz

MacDermid Graphics Solutions, Atlanta, Georgia, has developed a new process to recycle flexographic printing plates. The patent-pending technology will start trials in North America by the end of the year.

“More than 20 million pounds of flexographic plates end up landfilled or used in waste-to-energy processes every year in the United States alone, said Ryan Vest, Director of Innovation at MacDermid. “This compelled us to develop  our own technology to expedite a renewable and sustainable way to eliminate this waste by focusing on total reuse.”

MacDermid has partnered with Sustainable Solutionz to manage the process of waste removal and recycling. Sustainable Solutionz will bring this process to market.

“Our industry identified a responsibility to repurpose flexograpic plates and corrugated carriers that occupy landfills,” said Gerry Mounsey, Co-Founder of Sustainable Solutionz. “We are pleased to introduce meaningful technology to reduce the packaging industry’s carbon footprint.”
