The America Recycles: Innovation Fair showcases recent advances in recycling technology, product development, and materials usage. Exhibitors will share a variety of new recyclable products, goods made from recycled content, innovative education and communication methods, materials that promote more effective recycling, recycling and manufacturing research, and new technologies that are advancing recycling today and into the future.
The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA’s) goal is to connect customers and potential investors with recycling innovators. Ideally, the Fair will spur market development and adoption of new technologies and products that increase recycling rates and improve the recycling system. Attendees will be able to interact with the Innovation Fair exhibitors during a dedicated time on November 16, 2020.
The America Recycles: Summit brings together all organizations and individuals who are interested in making a difference in recycling in the United States. On November 17, 2020, EPA plans to announce national recycling goals, provide an overview of its draft national recycling strategy, and facilitate engaging public and private sector discussions on advancing recycling.
Daniel R Simmons, Assistant Secretary for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, will participate in a panel discussion with other federal agencies on implementing the National Recycling Strategy.
