The Federation of Plastics and Alliances Composites (FEPAC) has received $200,000 in non-repayable funding to help it continue maintaining and improving the competitiveness of Quebec plastics processors.

According to Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, the contribution will allow the Boucherville, Que.-based industry association to carry out a three-pronged project: recruit small and medium-sized enterprises to develop an action plan and strategies for sustainable development; implement the plan and strategies mapped out; and, lastly, assess the actions taken. “Optimizing their capabilities will encourage plastics industry SMEs to improve their performance and their compliance with the new requirements for eco-friendly production, Lebel said in a press statement.

The funding has been granted through Canada Economic Development’s Quebec Economic Development Program.
