The 2014 Recycling Innovators Forum

The Recycling Innovators Forum is a venue for inventors and innovative organizations to present their game-changing ideas on how to advance recycling.  The Forum offers innovators throughout the recycling community the chance to compete for additional funding, marketing opportunities and industry support.

Co-located with the annual Resource Recycling Conference, the Forum is designed to elevate the best and brightest ideas in recycling to the national stage and connect them with the companies, institutions and organizations that can help turn them into reality.  Original ideas, inventions and processes presented at the Forum are "shovel-ready" and capable of producing a real and immediate positive impact on the recycling industry.

Approximately 250 people attended the 2014 Recycling Innovators Forum on September 15 in New Orleans.  Attendees heard presentations from the eight finalists, talked one-on-one with the finalists and congratulated the two winners.
