“We’re grateful to have been asked by our friends at E-Scrap to participate in multiple discussions at such an important conference,” said Dillon. “It’s key that we as an industry focus on the various ways we can harness innovation to continue to evolve.

And thanks also to the Basel Action Network for inviting us to be part of their discussion as well.”
