Image Microsystems, a provider of technology restoration, reverse logistics, e-waste recycling, and recycled plastic products manufacturing, has been named a 2011 Green Supply Chain Award winner by Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
The 2011 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies that are making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains, in the areas of sourcing/procurement, fulfillment/logistics, operations, product lifecycle management, and other areas of the supply chain.
The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services that are assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
“We are delighted to be named a Green Supply Chain Awards winner for the second year in a row, joining the other outstanding organizations recognized for making sustainability an essential element of their supply chain strategies,” Alex Abadi, Ph.D., CEO of Image Microsystems, said in a written statement. “Our principals of sustainability, security, technical innovation, and community are drivers of the reverse logistics programs we implement for our customers- – enabling them to “green” their reverse supply chains,” continued Abadi.
Image Microsystems aids electronics retailers to more efficiently manage consumer returns. The company also helps businesses and government agencies responsibly recycle their idled and end-of-life IT assets through a complete closed-loop process. As a result, Image Microsystems continually receives increasing amounts of the raw e-waste material used in the manufacture of their patent-pending MicroStrate™ sign substrate products.
MicroStrate is a signage material made completely of recycled e-waste plastic. Currently, most e-waste ends up in China or other developing countries where it is a large and growing problem. Image Microsystems has invested many years and millions of dollars to discover efficient methods of recycling and uses for e-waste plastic. MicroStrate™ sign substrate is a result of those efforts.
The material is also suitable for ADA signage and for those companies pursuing LEED Certification. No other reverse logistics provider offers this type of program.
