Case Studies in Acoustic Performance
Like other manufacturers, this plastics producer has a certain amount of waste inherit in the making of a product. Fortunately, they are able to recycle waste. Waste is loaded into a granulator which grinds the plastic into tiny pellets. Eventually these pellets are reused in a finished product.
