recyclability of wood plastic composite deck

Perhaps most recognizable as decking materials, wood-plastic composites in fact display an incredibly wide range of potential applications. Additionally, in many applications the plastic materials that are used can be obtained from post-industrial or post-consumer recycling sources, further reducing the need for more 

In order to facilitate reuse and recycling, we mark all of our products with their resource content, and we have pioneered a collection program for composite-decking job-site scraps. Wood composites, especially those in the ultra-low maintenance category, can compete against the best wood and plastic 

Recycling material from Wood-plastic Composites (WPC). In principle, WPC are marketed as recyclable products. However, a specific waste legislation classification for WPC does not currently exist. The recycling depots are faced with increasing quantities of WPC which cannot be allocated to a particular area. “Internal 

's eco-friendly composite decks are made from a blend of 95% recycled wood and plastic--a great choice for your home & the environment. 95% recycled materials, and one point in the Innovation and Design category. Join a recycling program and help in our mission to keep the Earth green. Recycling Programs.

What makes it so environmentally friendly on the material-sourcing and manufacturing end also makes composite decking unsustainable on the installation and end-of-life side. When you mix an industrial material (plastic) that is recyclable with a biological materials (wood) that is compostable you get a 

Description. Wood-plastic composite decking has made major advances in material performance, processing and user acceptance. The growth of wood-plastic composite decking in North America has grown from less than 1 % in mid- 0's to over 10% today with growth projected by several studies to reach 20% before the 

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a group of materials that have been developed and refined over the past 12 years that are now generating high levels of global interest. For users of wood products there is a need to improve the recourse efficiency and to recycle thematerials waste that inevitably occurs. Wood 

What Goes Into Composite Wood Decking. 's parent company, Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies, Inc. (A.E.R.T.), located in Springdale, AR, is a leading plastics recycler and manufacturer of green composite building products. Our state-of-the-art 70,000 square-foot plastic 

Abstract. Wood-plastic composite decking has made major advances in material performance, processing and user acceptance. The growth of wood-plastic composite decking in North America has grown from less than 1 % in mid-90's to over 10% today with growth projected by several studies to reach 20% before the 

Learn how transforms unwanted plastics into beautiful composite decking and railing. Recycled plastic. Reclaimed wood. No felled trees. Having completed the recycling process, the blended pellets are then transferred to a large storage silo. Here, the materials will await delivery to our nearby 

What's most remarkable about wood plastic composite is that it can be created entirely from recycled materials collected from C&D operations, wood product manufacturing facilities, and more. To top it off, used WPC can even be recycled to create brand new WPC, making WPC the ultimate recyclable 

Wood-plastic composite decking has made major advances in material performance, processing and user acceptance. The growth of wood-plastic composite decking in North America has grown from less than 1 % in mid- 0's to over 10% today with growth projected by several studies to reach 20% before the end of this 

Today's plastic bottles, bags and product wraps could be tomorrow's durable deck or other plastic wood composites. But only if you recycle your plastics.
