You find below my talk entitled: "Recyclable coated paper for Food service Packaging":


Chuck Klass of Klass Associates Inc, shared with us latest trends in OCC supply and demand: 1) Prices will continue to escalate; 2) Recyclable barrier coatings replacing waxing can increase supply but are not a long term answer to the shortage 3) Recycling mills may need to utilize alternative sources of recycled fiber 4) Installing a parallel system to process the “side stream” can make economic sense.
