The Consortium for Waste to Syngas Circularity (CWSC) joins the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) community as a resource partner.

SGP is the only certification organization promoting sustainability in all printing processes throughout the United States and Canada.

CWSC aims to align the packaging industry to follow a science-based route of all waste to syngas to “green methanol” for the production of virgin packaging materials. This ends the practice of landfills and incineration.

SGP resource partners are nonprofits, NGO’s and educational institutions engaged in promoting, teaching or researching in the areas of graphic arts and/or sustainability. Resource partners are subject matter experts that assure the entire community is empowered with the acumen to advance sustainability in the printing industry supply chain.

“SGP’s focus on streamlining resource consumption during printing manufacturing to be sustainable and environmentally friendly goes hand in hand with the end of life focus at CWSC to create an endless loop of circularity,” said Mike Ferrari, president, CWSC.

“CWSC promotes an innovative technology to treat waste and convert it to feedstock for virgin materials. The leadership teams of CWSC and SGP are excited to work together to make progress on sustainability challenges the printing industry faces,” said Doreen Monteleone, SGP treasurer and Flexographic Technical Association representative.
