REDUCED NATURAL RESOURCE CONSUMPTION



            • 20 of 21 Injection Presses have had 
            “barrel blankets” installed to regulate 
            their barrel temperature during tool 
            changes and other down times,
            • Each blanket represents ~$1,000 
            savings in power usage each year,
            • Reduce overall heat load affecting the 
            employee during hot summer months.

            Converters for incineration and eventual 
            energy generation,
            • In the coming months, we will be

            and selling our waste cardboard to 
            recyclers, 
            • This also represents a cost savings by 
            not paying to have our cardboard shipped 
            off site to Waste Converters. 

                                                                         Collins & Aikman

               externally 331 tons of plastic - $243,126, 
               • In 2004, we have added 3 new grinders 
               increasing capacity for greater internal 
               and external recycling opportunities, and
