LyondellBasell and our mechanical recycling joint venture Quality Circular Polymers (QCP) are working with Unilever, a leading global consumer goods company, to develop packaging materials made from recycled plastic waste for Unilever’s newly introduced Dove roll on and Rexona deodorant product lines. For these two applications alone, it is estimated that 940 metric tons of post-consumer resins will replace previously used fossil-based resins in 2021. The packaging for both deodorants can be recycled after use.
LyondellBasell, QCP and Unilever have collaborated for several years to develop sustainable solutions that do not compromise quality and meet Unilever’s ambitious target to reduce use of virgin plastic in packaging by half; ensure 100% of plastic packaging is designed to be fully reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025; and help collect and process more plastic packaging than the company sells by 2025.
