This year’s case study required students to provide operational, distribution and production capacity recommendations for a craft brewery facing a changing regulatory environment.

 Raleigh Recycling Facility Tour

Student Case Competition Participants


On January 18th, 2017,  7 members went on an incredible plant tour of the Raleigh Recycling Center! It was an amazing, eye opening experience to see what happens to our recycled material after it leaves our sidewalks. A very informative guide walked the group through the process as they observed the line running. The tour was a huge success! We hope to see more of you at our next tour!
