Chuck Klass Joins Ei Advisory Council - WELCOME!

With great honor, Elemental Impact welcomes Charles (Chuck) Klass to the Ei Advisory Board. A well-respected paper pulp expert, Chuck is an invaluable resource as Ei addresses the integrity inherent within paper foodservice ware recycling processes. 

To date the Sustainable Food Court Initiative Pilots chose to embrace compostable foodservice ware products. Future pilots will directly address whether it is best to use compostable and|or recyclable products. Lively discussion is certain to ensue - Ei will look to Chuck to assist with untangling discussion points with grounded facts, many at the molecular level.

Several of the more prestigious industry awards bestowed upon Chuck include the TAPPI Distinguished Service Award and The Western Michigan University Paper Technology Foundation Paper Technology Hall of Fame - IMPRESSIVE!

With over 50 years of membership in the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, Inc., Chuck was honored as a TAPPI  Life Time Member for his extensive contributions to the organization and industry. Using his MBA in Marketing Management (with Distinction) from Pace University in New York, Chuck couples his technical expertise with strong business skills in consulting and education endeavors.

Ei founder Holly Elmore, who calls Sarasota her hometown, is fortunate to spend educational time with Chuck waterside near his Madiera Beach, FL home. The ZWA Blog post, Paper Pulp + Water = Rod 'N Reel, Anna Maria, FL, is a recap of Holly's first Paper Pulp 101 session in May, 2011.

Chuck is one of those unique individuals who brings a great sense of humor along with wisdom to challenges and opportunities. With the evolution of the foodservice ware packaging, as well as transport packaging, Ei looks to Chuck to ensure integrity is infiltrated in systems developed within programs and initiatives.

Thank you Chuck for accepting the Ei Advisory Council invitation - WELCOME!
