Materials Recovery for the Future at SB17 Detroit

Materials Recovery for the Future (MRFF) is an American Chemistry Council non-profit research collaborative composed of key players from the packaging value chain – brands, manufacturers, packaging companies, retailers, processors, and communities – all committed to advancing the understanding of how flexible plastic packaging can be effectively sorted for recovery.

MRFF and RRS are teaming up to host a booth (#1514) in the Good Supply Chain Activation Hub during Sustainable Brands 2017 in Detroit, May 22-25, 2017. Join us at the booth for special Meet & Greet sessions and learn how to GET INVOLVED!
