On National Manufacturing Day, it is important to remember that manufacturing and recycling are a perfect match. Manufacturers make the products that get recycled, scrap is generated from the manufacturing process and gets recycled, and then manufacturers buy commodity grade recycled product to make new things. None of those examples even take into account the packaging materials that also can be recycled.
As the ISRI Convention and Exhibition approaches, RIOS™ staff are busy preparing to ensure that RIOS™ has its biggest presence to date. In addition to a wide range of RIOS™-focused sessions, and some exciting announcements, you will see RIOS™ throughout the entire event.
By now, there is no one associated with the recycling industry that hasn’t been negatively affected by low commodity prices, or the unpredictability associated with those prices. From facilities, to equipment providers, everyone shares the burden. It is, however, in times like these that your RIOS™ QEHS Management System best provides value to your facility.
By now you have seen many references to the RIOS™ revision. We have sought your feedback, and now we are beginning to provide educational programming so that you, the implementers, are prepared for what’s coming. Before we get too deep into the details, it is important to first understand the purpose behind the revision.
