To all: It appears that I was premature in my response to the no recycling of polymer plates. It appears that AGFA provides this service for their customers. Here is the response I received from my contact in Belgium: Here is the response I received from AGFA: Agfa takes back (free of charge) and recycles (reuses pet) all pet plates. To my knowledge we are the only to do this. We are doing this worldwide. For USA we have the plates washed by urrc (spartanburg) as dupont is no longer active. For Europe we wash them in mortsel and reuse the pet for filmbase. Gary Jones Graphic Arts Technical Foundation 200 Deer Run Road Sewickley, PA 15143 412/741-6860 x608 - Phone 412/741-2311 - Fax
