If you are someone who may not be familiar with industrial design and its related processes, then chances are you’re unfamiliar with what closed-loop recycling is. Closed-loop recycling is a process we use here at The Pro Design Group by almost all of our plastic scraps being closed-loop recycled right here in-house, documented, and then reused for the same client to keep the loop of recycling what we call “closed” and controlled. Every month, we process 200 1,000-pound gaylords in a variety of materials. We are regarded as one of the best in the industry in terms of our closed-loop recycling processes because we carry it out with strict controls and cleaning measures, as well as keeping all the materials we work with inside our structures, to prevent any kind of cross-contamination. Additionally, we ensure the regular maintenance and change out of the blades we use on a monthly basis in an effort to minimize fluffing and to keep a high rate of production. Our capacities include multiple 100 HP grinders and dry storage.
