plastic manufacturing process
The costs of manufacturing RPL depend partly on:
" Sorting technology.
" Production capacity/rate.
" Quality of recycled resins (feedstock).
" Quality of the additives that improve RPL's properties.
(Additives can account for as much as half of the total raw material
" Quality of the manufacturing process.
Government Procurement of RPL
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act mandates a federal
"buy recycled" program that requires the United States
Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) to designate products
made of recovered material as suitable for purchase by federal
agencies. As a result of this mandate, U.S. EPA prepares an annually
updated set of comprehensive procurement guidelines and a Recovered
Material Advisory Notice that recommends the practical recycled-content
level of the materials.
Although California has not developed any procurement guidelines
for recycled products, several local agencies have purchased RPL.
Some of the California government purchasers include:
" National Parks Service, Golden Gate NRA: Cavalry stables.
" East Bay Regional Park District: Sign and trail posts.
" City of Sacramento, Boating: Boat bumpers.
" U.C. Davis, Student Housing: Dormitory exterior benches.
" Santa Cruz Port District: Decking and piles.
" San Mateo County Harbor District: Railing at the top of
a bulkhead wall.
" City of Berkeley Marina: Signs and mooring rails on the
" Don Pedro Recreation Agency: Railing.
