Sustainability for the Future

Posted by on Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Green and Lean
CLI recently added a new plant-wide recycling program to their     sustainability efforts.  The program converts non-recyclable label substrates into sustainable fuel pellets that are purchased by coal fired power plants as an alternative energy source, significantly reducing waste-to-landfill.   The Label waste (matrix and set up materials) is loaded into reusable containers provided by Rohn Industries, a local Twin Cities recycling transfer station.  The waste material is compacted and transported to Greenwood Fuels in Green Bay Wisconsin, who processes and converts the waste in to fuel pellets.

CLI continues to seek and implement the most efficient, responsible and sustainable manufacturing practices to reduce our impact and carbon footprint on the environment.
