The American Chemistry Council’s Plastics Division (ACC) is pleased to announce that the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) has been selected to receive Innovation in Plastics Recycling Awards in 2017.

The awards recognize companies, nonprofits, and government bodies that successfully bring new technologies, products, and initiatives to communities and the marketplace, which demonstrate significant innovations in plastics recycling. ACC announced the awards in celebration of America Recycles Day.

The 2017 winners are recognized for supporting end markets for recycled plastics. With China’s National Sword taking effect, more recycled material is staying in the United States, and there is an opportunity to grow domestic end markets for recycled plastics.
