EDITOR'S MEMO: Sustainable Opportunities
Manufacturers are also seeking ways to minimize their impact on the environment, which not only plays well with consumers who are interested in “green” products, but can also actually improve the bottom line. According to Andrew Zaremba of American Sealants Inc., “The advancements in adhesive and sealant packaging help promote sustainability, decrease overall waste, create a more efficient process and generate cost savings-all while enhancing the overall product value.” Read more about “Effective and Efficient Packaging Solutions.”
Incorporating bio-based materials is another option. For example, work at Croda Inc. has resulted in the development of bio-based amine-functional building blocks that can be used in a number of applications. “Formulation Freedom” has the details.
Keeping track of all of the various factors involved with eco-footprint management can be an overwhelming task. “Greening the Supply Chain” includes information regarding how companies can take advantage of enterprise resource planning software to help them track and evaluate environmental impact data.
