The Acme Group has strategically positioned itself in the manufacturing world helping their clients with their sustainability goals, cradle to cradle products and industrial recycling.

Preserving our resources is the right thing to do. And frankly, it just feels good. Our NeuBond filters and NeuSorb™ absorbents are blazing a new path in waste stream removal.

The Acme Group is proud to be leading the sustainability charge in industrial manufacturing by helping their clients reach their “zero landfill” initiatives, and turning waste streams into revenue streams. By reengineering existing products, developing environmentally and economically sustainable products, and finally providing real recycling solutions, The Acme Group is changing the footprint of manufacturing. On February 4, 2013, The Acme Group launched a set of sustainability initiatives, including taking steps into reformulating many of our their products making them 100% recyclable and adding a goal that with every new sale to put into place a system for retrieving waste and off-fall and put it into a recycling process.

The Acme Group is currently partnering with numerous forward thinking companies in multiple industries including the world’s leading tractor manufacturer, one of the US major cereal makers, and Detroit’s largest automotive suppliers, keeping millions of tons of industrial waste from going to land fill.

Recycling is an essential process for The Acme Group and its clients. With this in mind, they have reformulated many of their rolled goods and filtration media, making them entirely recyclable. Their goal is to put into place a system for retrieving and recycling their client’s industrial waste with their patented recycling processes. Utilizing NeuBond™, their exclusive customizable filtration media together with a patented process to extract contaminates from spent filtration materials, The Acme Group can recycle the filter and its contaminants into desirable products in true cradle-to-cradle fashion.

“Preserving our resources is the right thing to do. And frankly, it just feels good. In our business, we are privy to some of the nastiest stuff companies are disposing of in landfills. Our NeuBond filters and NeuSorb™ absorbents are blazing a new path in waste stream removal. Not only do they perform as good or better than any comparable filters on the market, all the waste is recycled and repurposed. Not incinerated as a combustible like other current ‘recyclable’ filter programs.” said Matt Utley, Director of Sales for The Acme Group.

Another way, The Acme Group is helping clients reach their green initiatives is through dedication to the elimination of non-recyclable foam in seating applications by using ComfortSpan™ fabrics. The client benefits from endless design possibilities, removal of foam, considerable weight savings, durability, enhanced comfort and therefore giving the client a more environmentally friendly end product.
