Rubber & Plastics News, in conjunction with its sister public Plastics News, recently published its annual directory of LSR processors.
While we don't rank LSR processors, we do list company locations, websites, contact names, end markets and more. And, for the 61 companies tracked this year, we also gather information that helps us track the industry.
We ask our respondents to fill out a survey about their operations. Not all firms respond, and not everyone answers every question. But still, we get an idea of players in the market and what products they produce.
The survey highlight is how much material was processed. For 2019, it was 4.2 million pounds, enough to fill 60 Olympic-sized swimming pools, or the equivalent of 2.25 million boxes of Quisp cereal. (Who knew when you clicked on this blog link you'd find a cereal reference?)
