FSEA Study on Sorting and Recycling of Fiber-Based Materials with Transfer Metallic Decoration


The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) has announced the release of a report detailing the results from a newly completed study on the sorting and recycling of fiber-based materials with transfer metallic decoration, i.e., cold foiling or hot foil stamping.

The new study goes beyond previous recycling studies by testing how transfer metallic decorated fiber-based materials are being sorted by Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) throughout the U.S. and North America.

Through extensive testing at the Van Dyk Technology Center in Norwalk, CT, the study demonstrates that fiber-based transfer metallic decorated materials are properly sorted by MRFs to be included in the recycling stream.
