At least 99% of waste generated at the Dalton, GA, plant is diverted from landfill.

The Techmer PM facility in Dalton, GA, has reached a milestone in its sustainability journey, the company announced today — Zero Waste to Landfill certification from global total quality assurance firm Intertek. Oversight by Intertek confirms that at least 99% of waste generated within the organization is efficiently diverted from landfills and redirected toward sustainable alternatives such as recycling, reusing, and energy recovery.

Materials design firm Techmer PM is committed to reducing waste at every level throughout its operations. Its facilities in Wichita, KS, and Rancho Dominguez, CA, are also chasing the Zero Waste to Landfill Certificate, but the Georgia plant is the first to cross the finish line.

“With this certification, Techmer PM demonstrates its leadership and proactive approach to environmental stewardship,” said Kaan Serpersu, product development and sustainability manager. “This achievement aligns with Techmer PM’s broader sustainability goals, which include reducing energy consumption, reducing water consumption, and establishing waste-to-energy programs.”

Techmer PM stressed that its  sustainability efforts encompass all aspects of its operations, from manufacturing processes to administrative functions. It has implemented innovative recycling initiatives, resource optimization strategies, and employee engagement programs to foster a culture of sustainability.

In addition to obtaining the Zero Waste to Landfill certificate, Techmer PM said it remains committed to continuous improvement in its sustainability practices. The company will continue to invest in research and development efforts to develop innovative, sustainable solutions for its customers and strive for further waste reduction across all its facilities, said the news release.

Techmer operates six North American plants and has extensive expertise in plastic- and fiber-related processes, from additive manufacturing and blown film to nonwovens, injection molding, and sheet extrusion.
